Everywhere I look, I keep running into peg skirts.
They are rather unmistakable, small at the waist, flared out at the hips and then narrow at the hem line.A peg skirt is quite easy to draft.
This will be the first of a two part post. Today I will show you how to start the draft of a peg skirt. Next Tuesday I will finish the draft and show you my finished skirt as well. The skirt that we will draft will have a yoke, pleats and a side pocket. The finished skirt will be similar to the skirt pictured above.
Now we will start to have some fun and draw in our pocket lines. The pocket is actually going to stand away from the skirt.
Measure 9" down from the waistline. At this point come out 1 1/2" as you see in the picture above. The depth of the pocket should be 5 1/2". The line closest to the side seam is 2 1/2" away from the side seam. The second line is 1 1/2" away from the first line. Connect the lines as you see above and round off the edge of the pocket.
In the next post, I will show you how to take all the pieces apart and make the final patterns. It may look a little complicated at this point, but once the pieces are pulled apart, I think you will be able to see just how easy this actually is. This really makes a great little skirt, perfect for light weight summer fabrics as well as heavier winter fabrics.
