You guys, the bias cut versions (views A + D) of the Wattle skirt are so much fun to play with! So lovely in solid colors and all over prints, but oh so satisfying when done in a stripe or plaid. It’s the perfect pattern to practice pattern matching!
Ever wanted to create a chevron design using stripes? Well today I’m going to show you how! There are actually multiple different methods out there for doing this. For example, some people like transferring the lines of the stripes/pattern onto a paper pattern, or tracing the pattern onto the fabric. But I’m going to show you a pretty simple method that has always worked for me! Not only will it work for stripes, but plaids too.
Just a note – I chose a kind of complicated stripe for this example (doh!). So I’m not going to be worried about matching up all the little designs withing the stripes, just the straight lines. But the method works just the same.
And then after that, I’ll go over how to sew up all of the bias cut seams, as well.
Phew. Ok, let’s do this…
