I would like to make a skirt like the StyleArc Bobbie Bask skirt. 

  1. Use the PMB calculator to draft a half circle skirt using my hip measurement for the waist, no ease, knee length.
  2. Draft an under yoke.
  3. Draft an outer yoke twice the depth of the inner yoke.
Is there anything else I am missing?  I like this skirt but don't want to pay international shipping to get it.  Besides, it looks really simple.

Use narrow clear elastic to compres the bask. You can stretch and stitch through the center.

Thank you Karen but this is not a full circle skirt.  I think it is a half or three quarters of a circle.  Here is what I came up with this afternoon:

 Oops. Looks like I need to save these in jpg.

Why wouldn't yoked and flared skirt work with the bask over the yoked part I am learning here

Yoke and flared will work since you can set the flare.

This option is in V3 but the amount of flare is limited compared to V5.

If I choose yoked skirt the flare option is grayed out.  This is embarrassing.  As many years that I have had this program I never noticed the 'yoked skirt box'.  I always thought the only yoked skirt was straight!  But it doesn't work for this, not enough flare.

Coopie - Were you talking about using elastic to scrunch up the outer yoke?

Select Yoked in waistline, not yoked skirt. You can then select flare and increase the flare, but not enough for this project.

I want to get this all thought through before I cut the fabric and find out I don't know what I'm doing. I have found someone online that has made this skirt and blogged about it. http://jillybejoyful.blogspot.com
"There is elastic at the waist - you sew this on to the inner bask, at the waistline seam. ... trying to keep that seam folded under the elastic was not an easy task! "
I don't see any elastic attachment at the waist. Would it just be attached to the seam allowance? Or is there a casing that I am not seeing?

I'll try pasting the link but in case I haven't quite mastered this on the IPad I found it by clicking on the Style Arc posts on the side bar of Jiilybe's blog.

To me waist would mean at the top of the skirt and yes I would just attach the elastic to the seam allowance or the inner yoke. You're not seeing a casing or elastic attachment because the in reading Jilly's review the Style Arc skirt bask is two layers with only the outer bask gathered. Reading Jilly's review the only reason she had difficulty is because she didn't have much fabric and so was working with tiny seam allowances to get as much length as possible.

Thanks for posting this skirt. It looks as if it would be flattering on many figure types.
This blog talks about the elastic being applied like twill tape.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I'm going upstairs today to see if I have a suitable fabric. Maybe I will even get it cut out.

rebells - 2012-09-22 5:28 PM If I choose yoked skirt the flare option is grayed out. 

Rebells - Choose yoked skirt, yoke skirt whichever,(I like gored)  *also* choose Hem Sweep **flared** (on top of Yoke Skirt). Now your flare will be activated whichever type of yoke skirt you choose.  Then, go to "Settings" tab and choose a flare eg 15 or 10.  

Hope that helps.

 

Also - Coopie has a good point about using the sew through elastic. I used jeans thread to gather on a shirt and it was a pain to gather through the serging, plus it ripped when I pulled the sides down out of habit.

Thank you Tessa. I use version 3 which works a bit differently than version 5, so your settings are not available to me. Version 5 has a lot of features I would like and use but my computer is over ten years old and was bottom of the line then with only 20 gig hard drive there isn't room for much.
