Asymmetrical skirt ..or as I call it: The Mullet

The asymmetrical skirt is very easy to sew and the "it piece" of the season. I really like this kind of cut as it puts together the advantages of a long skirt in the back and a short one at the front. ^^ And the German word for it, Vokuhila, is so cool. XD
Click for pattern scheme :)  
So as you see, you only need a piece of fabric that is a bit wider than your hip, I think mine was about 1,40m wide. The shortest length on the sides can be about 40 cm, the longest you can vary, depending on your leg length, my skirt is about 90 cm long. The fabric I used is a very old one from my grandma, even from GDR-times. When you have cut it, just sew the short sides together, they will be in the front later when wearing it. Then sew a tunnel in the upper part and place a rubber band in it, its length depends on your hip/waist size. Fix it. So that's it. If you wanto to, sew at least the hemline properly. That's it ^^

Very nice :D I had been wondering whether the fabric was genuinely vintage and it is ;_; Consider me jealous.

I wore it today the first time and felt really comfortable and hippie-esk in it

I love your mullet skirt! I think they can be quite hit-or-miss, but yours is so pretty.
