This skirt is made with the wandervogel fabric from echino’s 2016 collection. While tactfully featuring the graphical motif, a touch of softness is added by tucking the waistline. The skirt’s glamorous design stands out when combined with a single color top. It creates a very impressive fashion statement!

We interviewed Yuka about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The biggest charm of this fabric is a beautiful pattern with an impact. The moment I saw it, I decided to make a skirt.
KF:Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
I tried to incorporate the fabric’s good thickness and gathering. It is not a see-through fabric, so it was perfect for tucking. The width of the tuck is coordinated in such a way to make the process easy. The fabric’s bold design helps the tuck look beautiful at this width.
KF:What are some tips for making this skirt?
Baste the tucks first. This will make the following process much easier.
KF:How should we wear this skirt in everyday situations?
I hope you will coordinate it with this season’s trendy top, a turtleneck shirt. It goes well with a pair of boots and fur, allowing you to enjoy it as the fall and winter wardrobe.
KF:Thank you very much, Yuka! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
