Pattern skirt year

With all its versatility, the finished dress does not give room for female imagination to combine.

Blouses and skirts, in this vein, are preferable. But then the question arises about the style. We offer to talk about skirts of the year.

Style Features

Style godet, also known as "fish, the tail of a mermaid" is a combined skirt.

A distinctive feature is the upper part, tightly fitting the hips, and the gradually expanding bottom. A sort of bell of various lengths.

Mini-skirts are options that appeared relatively recently. Initially, there were only medium and very long skirts. Until now, the classic length is 70 cm.

The peak of popularity occurred in the 1930s of the XX century, now the question of fashion in relation to style is not worth it - it's been a classic for a long time.

Who will suit the skirt for a year?

Thanks to the smooth expansion year to year, this type of skirt draws a silhouette. It is difficult to find a woman to whom this cut would not suit.

However, there are some nuances:

  • Tall girls will suit a year - midi, they will not make you disproportionately tall, but they will add elegance.
  • Women with a bulging tummy, regardless of weight, should not choose skirts that fit the area under the belly. Let the top be a bit loose.
  • Wide hips and buttocks are balanced by a strong flare, the image will be harmonious.
  • Owners of long slender legs are suitable mini-options. Wide flared wedges a year, will not allow passers-by to see more than necessary, even in a strong wind. The kilt effect will work.


These skirts are sewn from various materials, both traditional skirt fabrics and a wide variety of textured fabrics:

  • tweed;
  • twill;
  • denim
  • genuine, faux leather and suede;
  • velvet, plush, velveteen;
  • dense cotton fabrics;
  • viscose;
  • mixed fabrics, including those with silk thread.

For the year, light, flowing fabrics are also perfect, they will give their owners airiness, grace. Not without reason, wedding dresses with a mermaid skirt have not lost their relevance for several years.

We offer you to create interesting models with your own hands with step-by-step instructions for beginners.

Interesting! The denser the fabric, the smaller the width of the wedges along the hem. In this case, the skirt will not puff.

Types of skirts

Such a skirt involves the presence of wedges from which the product is sewn. More often they are the same width and length, but there are exceptions. Wedges an even number - 4, 6, 8, less often 10 or 12.

The expanding part of the wedge can be one-piece, or sewn to the bottom. In the latter case, the inserts can be made of fabric of a contrasting color.

Advice! The inserts from guipure, chiffon, mesh, lace, including hand-knitted ones, look interesting.

You can also classify skirts by length:

  • Mini - length above the knee.
  • Midi - most often a year is sewn just like that - length 70-80 cm, do not close the ankle.
  • Maxi, as well as to the floor or below the ankles.

In connection with the features of the cut, a year is often sewn with a gradient of height - in front or side, it is shorter or a train is made.

Features of the construction of wedges

In order to build the simplest skirt pattern a year, special skills and devices are not needed.

To begin with, we need to decide how many wedges the future product will consist of, what its length will be, and whether our wedges will be either stitched or solid .


The following measurements are required :

  • Waist circumference - measured at the narrowest point of the body.
  • Hips - over the protruding parts of the hips.
  • Thigh Height - The distance from the waist to the hip. It is more convenient to tie a thread on the waist and hips and measure the distance between them.
  • The length of the product is from the waist to the intended hem.
  • Height year - at what distance from the hip flares begins.
  • The width of the skirt on the hem.

Progress on the pattern

  • We select how many wedges your product will have, divide all the received volume figures by this number. For example, the waist volume is 60 cm, the wedges are 6, which means that the width at the waist of one wedge is 10 cm. In the same way, we calculate the width of the wedge from the hips.
  • On a piece of paper - whatman, graph paper, wallpaper, draw a line of symmetry.
  • We mark several horizontal lines. These are the waist, hips, bottom line.

In detail, it happens like this:

  1. Set aside the width of the waist symmetrically from the center line.
  2. Put down the height of the thigh down.
  3. Perpendicularly draw the line of the thigh.
  4. We measure on this line the width of the wedge along the thigh.
  5. We mark the length of the product.
  6. We choose from what place the year line will begin, and at what angle it will pass. See picture.
  7. We outline the hem line.

Thus, the classic year of any length is cut out, this pattern is perfect for the skirt to the floor.

Modeling options

By changing the height of the wedges, it is easy to make a skirt with a gradient hem length. In this case, the symmetry of the pair of wedges is important, each pair is aligned after the previous one.
