Kelsey’s custom Scorpio ballet skirt was sewn from my Scorpion Tattoo Cherry Flame design, using Spoonflower Poly Crepe de Chine.
First, she chose her custom colors by using a Spoonflower Color Map. We wanted a light drapey fabric that would allow for free range of movement without clinging. After testing a few different options, we decided to use the Spoonflower Poly Crepe de Chine. Using one yard of fabric, I drafted a wrap skirt pattern, cut on the bias. For a ballet skirt, avoid pleating or gathering around the waist, and instead cut the fabric on a circle and let it fall from the waistband. I cut a 2″ bias tape out of black woven cotton, and stitched it to the waistband, leaving enough length to wrap and tie at the back. The hemline was finished with a 1/4″ rolled hem.
Kelsey, you’re the best! xo Ronya
