Ahh thank you for this! I'm going to go try it immediately. I recently became interested in lolita, but I'm not very good at sewing yet... This is a wonderful tutorial and seems easy to understand! Wish me luck with my first skirt!

This is really good. The only thing I would do differently is just add the extra distance needed for the button flap onto the waist band. That way it is a seamless waistband. It's just something I learned to do in school. Other then that I may use a semi modified version of this for my skirt.

So I'm guessing I can't get that beautiful ruffle without a sewing machine? ;__;

No you probably can dear!
All I do to make a ruffle (even with a machine)
Is I use HUGE stitches and just pull the fabric til it's gathered to my liking.
it can be a little bit of a pain to keep even, but that's all I do.

So what if I don't want a zipper, will it still work?

God bless you for telling us how you ruffle. I've been having troubles since I started and trying to ruffle and the way you do it is so easy I wish I was showed this earlier.

What kind of petticoat did you use? Like how many tiers, what length, etc.

Ok so, I'm thinking of using this tutorial since all the others were too confusing qq.. This seems less confusing though! YAY!
So I want a fully black skirt to match a dress (which I turned into a top) I got recently. Do you think it would look better to do it how you have here, but have the purple and white parts black? Or to leave out the extra bit and have the entire length without the "gap" where you can see the white joins?

Sorry for the long comment, just you're experienced with making these so I thought it'd be easier to ask you~ :heart: THANKYOU VERY MUCH

This skirt is a "two tier" skirt, so you can do either one! commonly skirts are just one main piece, with perhaps lace or a ruffle (ala AP prints) but the tiered thing is also nice.

haha no problem. :)

Trixus Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
^^ Thanks for the reply.
And I see. I think I will do the two-tier part, and add black lace over it for detail. Idk. I think that'd look nice. x3

:iconrhodygunn:
RhodyGunn Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
That would definitely look cute! Mind that you gather the lace and the ruffle separately, not together, because if you gather them to each other, they look weird. Do you know what I mean?
Reply
:icontrixus:
Trixus Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think I might.. Do you mean gather them separately then put them together, rather than trying to do them at the same time, already attached?
Reply
:iconrhodygunn:
RhodyGunn Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
Yes! Gather them separately, then attach them, and treat them as one piece when you attach the bottom of the skirt to the top.

Hahaha np. Yes it would work. Just don't do the waistband part. simple attach the gathered skirt to the bodice!

I just wanted you to know that I used your tutorial to make myself a lolita-esque skirt today(while not a lolita, the style was exactly what I wanted)

It's the first zippered skirt I've made and I'm happy to say it came out wonderfully~ I just need to make a bow for it and it'll be finished.

Thanks so much for making this, it was very very helpful

I dont know if this has been asked before but is it possible to modify to be sans zipper?
Reply
:iconrhodygunn:
RhodyGunn Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011
Well, unless you don't want to be able to put it on, you'll want a zipper...

You could do a fully-elasticised skirt, that you can just pull on, with out a zipper. Then you would just to a flat waistband casing all along the top that is the width of the skirt (without gathering the skirt) and put elastic through it.
