Womens Fashion Skirts' Fabrics

Modern day skirts are generally made of light to mid-weight and fine quality fabrics. Some of the fabrics used include Denim, Silk, Jersey, Cotton, Worsted, Poplin etc. However, some skirts are made of thin or clingy fabrics. These skirts usually worn with slips for modesty as well as for better drape.

Different Shapes of Skirts

  • Full skirt: It is a full-length skirt with fullness extending from the waistband.
  • Straight skirt: These skirts have a straight cut. These tailored skirts hang straight from the hips and are fitted from the waist to the hips. Straight skirts are also designed with a kick-pleat for walking comfortably.
  • Pleated skirt: In these skirts, the fullness is reduced by means of regular pleats, also known as plaits or folds so that they fit the waist in a proper way. The pleats can be stitched flat to hip-level or free-hanging.
  • Circle skirt: This type of skirt is cut in sections so as to make one or more circles with a hole for the waist. The design imparts fullness to the skirt and also lets the skirt hang smoothly from the waist without darts, pleats or gathers.
  • A-line skirt: These skirts are designed with minimum flare and in some way they represent the capital letter A of English alphabet.
  • Divided skirt: These fashionable skirts resemble a skirt, but is divided into two legs. Divided skirts are very similar to a loose-fitting pair of trousers or long shorts.
