Ellen from The Chilly Dog shows how to make this flared skirt. It’s made from eight gores, or angled panels, which give it that lovely flared fit. The one she made comes right to the knee, but you could lengthen this to a longer skirt if you like. Her tutorial shows how to draft the pattern using your hip and waist measurements and then how to sew it up into a cute new skirt. Go to The Chilly Dog for the tutorial.
