Sewing Circle: Very cool ruched knit skirt
I got this question from Carrie about a super cute James Perse skirt worn by several celebs, looks super cute and I love the casual grey! Here's Carrie's question:
Q: I love this skirt that Mila Kunis wears in Friends with Benefits. AND of course it is sold our everywhere! Do you think you can help me find a pattern or just even a good idea of how to make this gorgeously simple skirt?! I think everyone would look good in it! Fixing about every hip/thigh problem out there and comfortably in jersey!
A: That is a super cute skirt, and I think I saw the same one on Zoe Saldana in People StyleWatch.
I would love to do a tutorial on it but I don't have time!—I’ve never seen a pattern for anything like it, but I don’t think you’d need one. This tutorial for an asymmetrical pleated mini will show you the basic concept you'd need to use. The skirt is probably an enclosed tube, almost, with the front sewn to the back at the bottom instead of a hem.
There also may be something vaguely similar on BurdaStyle, but not the same. Here are two that would be a similar idea:
I can already imagine how it’s put together and it’s really very simple, I’m sure. Hey, readers, have any of you seen a pattern more like what Carrie needs?? I really hope there's one out there!
