Pattern Description:

Tiny little skirts are the foundation of Gothic fashion. They're perfect for showing off fabulous legs and stunning boots. This one has a sewn in garter belt, as inspired by Lip Service.

This easy-to-follow tutorial includes fully illustrated instructions on patterning, cutting and sewing Your very own garter skirt. You can make it as short or as long as You like, but note that the amount of fabric specified makes a very short skirt.

Also note that this tutorial does not include a pattern, but will help You make Your own in quick, easy steps.

Tutorial is written in Finnish and English, all in the same .pdf-file.

PS. I'm wearing a tulle petticoat under the skirt, and this tutorial doesn't include instructions for that.
