How to draft a 6 panel skirt with flares

To make the pattern, we start with the block of the straight skirt with 2 darts

we draw the yoke line, parallel to the waistline

we shorten the dart so they will have the same depth as the yoke

separate the yoke from the rest

and shape the yoke (closing the darts)

redraw the yoke’s new shape

draw the panel’s lines vertical

at 1/3 from the Centers.

draw an horizontal line at knee level

draw vertical lines from knee down

pivot the lines at knee level

On my drawing, I pivot to 8 cm (distance at the bottom). The bigger the distance, the more flare on the skirt

You can start the flares at knee level, higher or lower

knee level
higher
lower

Reshape and redraw
