Simple Projects Week: Layered Skirt!
A week of simple projects wouldn't be complete with a simple skirt. This is probably the simplest one I've ever made, thanks to the jersey knit that doesn't need hemming. (Yay!)
I've made one in little punkin size, but the instructions will work for any size!
It's a great skirt for lounging around in the seasonally transitional days. :o)
Want to make one? Yes, you do. Trust me. ;o) And you can!!
- To begin, cut two rectangles (about 1.5-2 x hip measurement) in slightly different lengths and sew the sides together to make 2 tubes.
- Put the shorter tube over the longer one and pin the tops flush.
- Then pin the skirt layers evenly to a piece of 2" elastic waistband(just sew the two ends together with right sides facing).
- Sew to the waistband(right sides facing), stretching the elastic to match the length of the fabric as you sew.
My beautiful pout-a-potamus:
Oh, how I love that face!
Tip: If you're intimidated by the elastic stretching part, you can easily attach the skirt by sewing a gathering stitch along the top(through both layers); then pull one thread to gather until the skirt is the same size as the waistband and then sew on.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial! For another simple skirt, check out my "20 minute skirt" tutorial, here!
Happy Wednesday! I'm feeling even more chipper than usual right now. I just love you guys, did you know that? I love talking to you like we're old friends. Thanks for all your comments!
See you tomorrow!
