I'm a person who gets a lot to get inspired with something, but the last time I watched The Craft I was watching it throw a brand new light.
The plot is kind of lame so I can't remember it properly. A bunch of teens filled of issues and use magic to go throw them... whatever.
When I was a teen I think there was a moment I thought it was worth of something, because I actually found a tape of it in the garage a couple of years ago.
I suppose we all had dark times and were lame and felt identified with the urban pseudo-punk decadence of the depressive preppy girls. Didn't you? Just me? Whatever...
The thing is that this time I was more interested in the outfits, I mean, how comes I hadn't notice how great they were before? Ok, that's a lie, maybe I kinda sported Docs with a plaid skirt when I was 12. Maybe my mom gave me a long speech of her concept of Do and Don't in fashion for a young lady, but we had that conversation thousand of times along my life and maybe I'm just making it up and she just told me to stop wearing that outfit... and my answer surely was a huge whatever again, tons of communication back then.
But now I'm older, and my mom gave up on me and my fashion sense when I was 16 and I thought that Courtney Love, Debbie Harry, Linda Perry and the rest of the 4 non Blondes, Angelina Jolie, Kathleen Hanna and Helena Bonham Carter were some of the most awesome and greatest-best dressed women in Earth... I think you can get the picture...; so I watched the flick and I actually got inspired. Miracle! And I was so happy that the skirt worked out that I needed to share with you the idea.
Something inspired in the fashion decay proper of the nineties in a prep school that Neve Campbell and the rest of the cast pulls out in an awesome way.
So I joined together two concepts: the plaid fabric and also the skirt I loved this season: the bandage skirt.
I bought like six of them along the winter in different colors and models, but my favorite is the bandage skirt of pieces. I found one in Zara but it was elastic and experimenting I was wondering if I could make a bandage skirt of pieces but not elastic.
And it actually worked and is kind of easy so here you have the first part of the tutorial.
You're going to need:
The skirt pattern.
A tape measure
A pencil or a pen
Enough fabric for make a skirt and a metre more.
1. Cut the pattern of your skirt in four pieces
2. Measure under your butt all the way throw your tights.
3. Measure your tights.
4. Measure over your knees.
This last three measurements are the ones we're going to use in each new piece.
1. The first piece:
Waist x 2cm + 10cm x hips +2cm x 14cm
2. The second piece
Hips + 2cm x 14cm x Measure under your butt + 2cm x 14cm
3. The third piece:
Measure of under your butt + 2cm x 10cm x measure of tights +2cm x 10cm
4. The fourth piece:
Measure of your tights + 2cm x 10 cm x measure of over your knees +2cm x 10cm
Now you must give the skirt the form of your body with the burmester ruler. You need to do it in the right side of the pattern because the left one is the one who is going to go double over the fabric.
Soon how to cut and sew this kind of skirt
