Sorry for the exceptionally bad photos!
First we finished the skirt on the right (yoke and added flare)
These are the four drafted pieces for the skirt on the right:
Then we drafted this skirt, which is the same as the previous one, but with added gathers.
Here's the "map" we drafted for this skirt:
And here are the pattern pieces that were drafted on tracing paper using the above map. What we did was add "gaps" in between the four "ribbons" of the skirt for creating both flare and gathers (does that make sense...?).
Then we moved on to a pleated variation of this skirt (I like pleats. Pleats are fun and pretty.):
Here are the drafted pattern pieces: One of them is folded the way the pleats would be folded on the skirt, and the other is opened up.
Finally we tackled this asymmetric skirt:
Here's the map:
Here are the skirt front pattern pieces (we were asked to add a lot of flare):
And here are the skirt back pattern pieces:
Starting to get complicated huh? But a lot of fun!
