    Default How to make mermaid skirt with Used Sari ?

    How to make mermaid skirt with Used Sari ?

    How to make mermaid skirt with Used Sari ?
    If you have any Used sari and want to make your own Skirt.
    I suggest you will love to make Mermaid skirt made out of Sari fabric.
    Its not really hard to make the skirt, You only need some calculation.
    I am trying to describe you how you can make your own mermaid skirt.
    Step 1 = Spread Sari after taking out Pallu
    ( You can use pallu to make blouse)
    Mark A-B width of Sari
    Mark A C Length of skirt you need.
    Cut A -B line as per your length of skirt
    Bottom of Sari with Border will go hem of your skirt
    Step 2
    Write down this on paper
    Measure around waist = X (Example your around waist is 40")
    X = waist + 2-3 loosing + 1-2" for side stitch
    Step 3
    Measure around hips = Y + 2-3" loosing and 1-2" side stitch
    Y = Hips + 2-3 loosing + 1+2 for side inches

    Step 4
    Measure Length A-E
    from waist or low hips you wear skirt to your maximum hips.
    Example 10-12"
    Step 5
    Now its time for calculation:
    If your sari is 5 " so its 5 x 39" = Total 195"
    You need to change 195" width into your waist size X
    Step 6.
    If your X is 45"
    You have 150" extra fabric on waist line
    You need to short width into equal pleats
    Step 7.
    I suggest each pleats should be 4" only.
    So we call P = 4" Pleats
    so you will need 150/4 = 37.5 Pleads
    Lets go with 37 pleads only
    Step 8.
    Now you calculate T
    T = Waist / No of Pleats
    Example 45 / 37 pleats
    Step 9.
    Now you mark with pencil inside of fabric
    E-F Line just where around hips
    Step 10
    You need to carefully draft pleads
    T= 1.1" approximate
    So after 1.1" Mark 4"
    Continue following mark 1.1 > 4" > 1.1> 4" till your fabric
    Step 12
    Mark Pleads like \/ on each 4" Mark
    check diagram

    Now you stitch your pleats G-H from inside of sari fabric.

    Your Skirt layout is ready
    Recheck the waist size and hips size. if its extra you can put in the side stitch Now stitch sides. wear it once and try if you need to make some alteration on side stitch if its perfect. you can add your waist band. Add elastic on waist band and enjoy your first self-made mermaid skirt.
    Share with your friends so every one can enjoy it.
