Fringed Skirt Pattern Drafting

Mark with the measurements on Paper or Chart.

Waist Band:

Width = ¼ hip + 1” = 9”+1” = 10”

Length = 3”

Fringed Skirt part length:

Length = 1/3 (Skirt length – WB Length) =  1/3(21”-3”) = 1/3(18”) = 6”

Lengths are same for the three parts.

Fringed Skirt  Part Width:

Skirt Part 1 width at Top = ¼ hip + 1” = 9”+1” = 10”

And width at Bottom = ¼ hip + 2” = 9”+2” = 11”

Skirt Part 2 width at Top = Skirt Part 1 width at Bottom

And  width at Bottom =¼ hip + 3” = 9”+3” = 12”

Skirt Part 3 width at Top = Skirt Part 2 width at Bottom

And width at Bottom = =¼ hip + 4” = 9”+4” = 13”


Fringe Part Measurement:

Length of Fringe part should be more that the skirt parts.

Length = Skirt part length + 1.5” +0.5” (for seam allowance) = 6”+1.5”+0.5” = 8”

To find Width of fringe you have to add the three skirt parts width at top.

Width   = (Skirt part 1 width at top + Skirt part 2 width at top + Skirt part 3 width at top) + 2”(seam allowance)

= (10”+11”+12”) +2” = 33”+2” = 35”

  • Cut the Fringe part with the above measurement. Then mark horizontal line ½” below the top, and mark repeated vertical lines for fringe with ¼” or ½” as your desire. Then cut the marked vertical lines till the horizontal line (should not cross the horizontal line). Now the fringe is ready. Then Cut the fringe part to match the each skirt parts.
