Ever since I saw the Tipa Dungaree pattern I have been dreaming of creating a skirt hack.
Tipa Dungaree Hack – Pattern Pieces
When I hack a pattern, I like to take the time to get this part right. A little extra time here makes for such an easier sew.
First, take your front pattern piece.
With a ruler draw a straight line continuing down from the centre front seam.
Next, take your back piece.
From the rear back notch, with a ruler, draw a straight line down so it meets, and is perpendicular, with the hem line.
TIP: If you would like your skirt to be slightly flared, draw this line at a slight angle.
I like to fold my changes out of the way along these new lines to save paper and make it a multi view pattern.
Alterations done!! Easy peasy!! All other pattern pieces remain unchanged.
Sew the Tipa Skirt
Cut out all your pattern pieces and follow the main Tipa Dungaree tutorial to construct your Tipa Skirt.
The only difference in sewing is that the centre front and back seams are now in a straight line instead of curved, and there’s no need to complete the crotch step!
Complete your Tipa Skirt!
Congratulations! One pattern, two ways!
I hope your little person enjoys wearing their Tipa Skirt!
Love and happy sewing,
