I'm pretty picky when it comes to clothes. Therefore, I make or modify pieces to create a wardrobe I really love. Dresses and skirts are my favorite clothing and they are so easy to make. Today, I'm sharing a quick and super simple skirt tutorial. It requires very little measuring or precision. The key to making this quick is to use jersey fabric. It doesn't require hemming so that takes a couple of steps out. If you decide to use a different fabric, you will probably want to hem it to keep from fraying.
Here's what I did:
1) I took a length of fabric. I'm not even sure what the measurements are. Most fabrics come 54" to 60" inches by the yard. So this one was mostly about that long by 36" wide.
2) I folded it in half lengthwise and sewed up the seam. This creates a continuos loop of fabric. Remember to do this inside out to hide your seam.
3) Next, I measured for the elastic band and pinned it.
4) I then zig-zag stitched along the pins to create the casing for my elastic. Make sure you leave it open so you have somewhere to feed your elastic.
5) I ran the elastic through and sewed the pieces together.
6) Lastly, I sewed up the hole on the side.
That's it! Your skirt is now ready for a night on the town!
