This DIY Chiffon Ballet Skirt is On Pointe | Pattern Included - Our newest fabric, Chiffon, is making its center stage DIY debut today with the help of longtime blog contributor and talented designer, Ceri Staziker (aka Cerigwen). This blousy and ultra-sheer fabric is a dream for projects that require a material with a light touch and beautiful drape.

Here, in tendu side, we see a sickled foot on the left and a correctly pointed foot on the right. Notice how the toes are well in front of the line that her calf is making, while the correct picture has them slightly behind the inside of her ankle.
Finally, in tendu to the back, the sickled foot practically has it’s toes pointing straight into the floor with the heel sticking up in the back. On the correct picture, the toes are once again behind the line from the inside of the ankle.
Now, demonstrating tendu to the front, notice how the foot is dipped under with the heel close to the ground, while the correct photo on the right shows once again that the toes are behind the inside of her ankle.
