The Fringe Skirt Pattern
The Fringe Skirt Pattern: The Angela Wolf Fringe Skirt Pattern is available here in print and digital format. You can also find the pattern at many local retailers.
Garment Fabric: tweed, boucle, join the facebook group of resources on choosing fabrics.
Lining: Any lightweight fabric will work for the lining polyester, acetate, satin, cotton – my favorite is bemberg rayon, silk charmeuse, and china silk. If you plan on adding a touch of couture by quilting the lining choose a natural fiber fabric for the lining.
Interfacing: A lightweight fusi-knit interfacing is used in the zipper area and in the waistband
Notions: 9″ invisible zipper, hook and eye, universal all purpose thread or silk thread, hand sewing needle, pins, scissors, sewing machine needle size 80/12, awl or something to unravel the fabric to make the tweed, zipper foot,
Fabrics & Supplies
The fringe on the skirt is made with three layers of fabric. A tweed or boucle is an ideal fabric for this pattern, simply because it’s easy to unravel the fabric as shown below.
Pre-Shrink the Fabrics
It’s important to pre-shrink the fabrics before cutting, especially if the fabric is a natural fiber. Do this by steam pressing. You can also take the fabric to the dry cleaners and ask them to “steam press” the fabric. Note: Just dry cleaning will not pre-shrink the fabric, it has to be STEAM PRESSED. If you plan on washing and drying the finished skirt, then wash and dry the fabric the same way.
