BN Sewers...I need help!

Post by mommar »

I'm looking for a pattern from the early to mid 80's for a Christmas tree skirt :-? :roll: It's 6 panels and is roughly 60 inches across. If you have a pattern like this, could you please trace one panel onto a piece of wrapping paper and send it to me........I'd gladly pay for the paper and the postage :) I don't need the pattern for the ruffle, just one panel. Thanks :)

OK......

Uhhhhhh.....your "pattern" is just basic Geometry.........and math........as this is a flat "Skirt" (from the picture).......there are 360 degrees in a circle, you want 6 segemnts of equal size.....uhhh.....errrrr....ummmm..... that would be 360/6=60 degrees per segment.......if the diameter is 60" (5ft) then each straight "Leg" on the segment is 60"/2 = 30"long. the radius of the rounded section of the segement is....yup, you guessed it....30" radius from the apex of the 2 straight "legs" (Sides). the hole in the center is up to you....looks like it is around 8 to 10" in diameter....which means a 4 to 5" radius from the "Apex".......NOW add 1/4" to 3/8" allowance for the stitching....and Voile' you have your pattern........... :D :D :D :D :D :D


Oh....BTW...a 60 degree triangle is an eqilateral triangle.....that means that ALL of the angles are 60 degrees......as such, the far "corners" of the triangle (where the radius is) will also be 30" apart.......the beauty of the equilateral is that all legs are the same as are all the angles........ :wink:

Same here.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

if the diameter is 60" (5ft) then each straight "Leg" on the segment is 60"/2 = 30"long.I missed that the radius of the rounded section of the segement is....yup, you guessed it....30" radius from the apex of the 2 straight "legs"Yup this is where my pattern was going wrong, Math at nite, and me (tired at nite) don't play well together :lol: :lol: :lol: (Sides). the hole in the center is up to you....looks like it is around 8 to 10" in diameter....which means a 4 to 5" radius from the "Apex".......NOW add 1/4" to 3/8" allowance for the stitching....and Voile' you have your pattern........... :D :D :D :D :D :DGot all that :D


Thanks Dutchy.............I have made the pattern on my computer, but I knew it wasn't right, just couldn't figure out why.........THANK YOU!!!!!![/b] Now I have to fix it, print it, and tape 20 pieces of paper together :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
