Attempting to make "ancient armor" style skirt

Postby chevym14 » Fri Feb 03, 2017 4:24 am

I am going to try and make a "ancient armor" style of skirt. I felt like having a bit more masculine type of skirt but I was inspired to make it in a very non masculine way, I wanted to make a skit just like fluttershy's in the episode "harts worming eve" :lol:
Here are some of the things I am going to style it on.

I made the the shape out of news paper and made these last night out of black canvas.

I just ducked taped it all together to see how it would look. I may add some decorative gray stitching or something to it but i don't know yet.

The attempt is fast turning to success. I think a contrasting pleat would work well with that style, there would be just a slight flash of colour with movement.

This reminds me of Bob Pettingill from Seattle.
I think he has gone to the Big Skirt Cafe' in the Sky.
Anyway, he took all of his old 'work' ties and had a
skirt made from them. Similar in style but extremely
colorful :D He wore his 'Tie Skirt' on stage when he
played guitar and keyboards in a local band.

Leave an open contrasting panel in between each pleat and you will have something similar to a cheerleaders fly-away skirt !
With that noted be careful of any False Starts in backfield in motion !
What is that Maggies drawers or a penalty flag thrown by the ref ?
And if you do any whirling dervish movements take care that you don't level the playing field ! LOL !

Great that someone has brought an interest back to sewing !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I did think it would look at bit like a skirt made of tires, and kind of like a cheerleder skirt so I added some sliver stiching to make it stand out more. I like it so far, kind of gives it a bit of a viking fell to it. What do you think?
