Sewing Tips | How To Draft Your Own Sewing Pattern -Part.1 Maple Skirt-

Hello, Sara here. Today’s sewing tip is something new and special: drafting your own sewing pattern! Hoping that this skirt will become your favorite, I’ve prepared this video. I’ll walk you step-by-step on how to draft your own Maple Skirt pattern using a piece of cardstock.

You probably know me well enough to know how much I love skirts and dresses. I took everything I love about a skirt and put those elements into the Maple Skirt. This Skirt really is the perfect skirt pattern for me!

The Maple Skirt is an A-Line Midi Skirt with the maximum volume that your fabric allows. This skirt is adjustable and customizable, meaning every Maple will be different and unique to you.

As this is not yet an actual skirt and is still just a drafting of the pattern, you are free to adjust the volume and length. And if you’re confident enough, you can go ahead and sew yours right away. But if you need my help, please wait for the Part 2 video which is a step-by-step sew-along video.
