Here we have yet another variation of the
basic pencil skirt. This time it’s with side slits or a slit. You can have one slit on
just one of the sides, or you can have a slit on either side, making it symmetrical. When
you look at this, notice that you’re going to think: “hey, you just showed us that; it’s
a front slit.” No. Look at the positioning of her body. This is a side view croqui. I’m
going to show you how to do the side slits though, on the front view croqui, right here.
When you do that, do your natural waistband, or wherever you want the natural waistband
to be. Figure out how long you want it to be. Mark it for your hemline. Now, in order
to show that it has side slits on this two dimensional, flat paper, we’re going to have
to draw it coming in down at the hemline on either side. And then go back and draw what
you would be seeing if it were three dimensional from the back. And that’s the back part of the skirt that
you’re actually seeing through the front. It’s just coming around the sides, and thus
you have your side slits.
