Kia skirt


A wrap skirt that won’t open !

KIA is an asymetrical flared wrap skirt with a thin belt and belt loops on the back. A large pleat on the front enhances the wrap effect. The bottom of the skirt is fully closed and won’t open when you sit.

KIA has a special construction and will allow you to learn to sew on the bias. I will share with you the techniques on how to work on the bias. I learnt these techniques while I was working in the Parisian “maison de mode”.

Fabric requirements

10 cm / 4’’ allowance is added to the fabric requirement calculation.

Suggested fabrics for the KIA skirt

If you are not familiar with sewing on the bias, choose a tightly woven fabric.

  • Spring/summer : medium weight cotton or linen
  • Fall/winter : medium or heavy wool or cotton fabric

More experienced sewers can choose silk for a more « couture » look.

I used the following fabrics for the samples :

  • Organic linen from Birch fabrics distributed by Miss Kika tissus
  • The striped skirt is made of cotton/polyester.
