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.

I am a Finnish indie author and designer, self-taught seamstress with a degree and a passion to create. I run a small business in fashion, offering unique, one-of-a-kind sewing, knitting and crochet patterns. As the Gothic style is close to my heart, most of my designs feature elements of dark fashion. As the environment is very dear to me, I try to include tips on how to take full advantage of recycled and upcycled materials in my patterns. Shop policy: we offer no refunds on electronic products.
