This skirt was made for a class project. It’s a cherry blossom patterned skirt with an optional top. The theme of my project came from the annual Sakura Matsuri Festival; which everyone gets dressed up in Japanese animation characters or floral summer dresses. To get the perfect shape of cherry blossoms, I used the laser cut printer to print my pattern.
* I used 100% silk fabric for my pattern because my school printer is only able to print organic fabrics.
Step 1: Sketch the Skirt
Create a quick sketch of the skirt you plan to make.
Step 2: Create the Skirt
I used a simple gathering skirt pattern. I used this type of skirt because it’s easier to attach the laser cutouts. There are two layers for this skirt.
Here's a very good tutorial from Ruffles And Stuff on actually making the skirt. http://www.rufflesandstuff.com/2010/04/20-minute-skirt.html
