How To Sew A Victorian Skirt A old tutorial I had on livejournal, I hope you like it :) So I thought that I would share my how to for this quite easy sewn skirt in taffeta that I made for a friend of mine, it is a two layer skirt with strings so that you can tie up and drape the panels as you wish. This is a bit simplified, On the original skirt the top of the skirt was lined with satin so it was not completed in the exact same way as in this tutorial, but trying to explain that whole deal was to time consuming to be worth it. Material you will need:Fabric: Of your choice, around 2 times the length of your skirtA zipper: I use a hidden zipper because I think it looks better, but a ordinary one is just as good.String: The length of your drapes and a little more *2*6 (you chose one can both have it the whole way up on the skirt or just half, or something similar) I use cotton string 0,5 cm (0,2 inches) thick. The pattern is a really easy one, it consist of 12 panels and then a long rectangle that is the ruffles.

DIY Tulle Skirt "A store-bought belt can obscure even the sloppiest of home-sewn waistbands." ~Ancient Chinese proverb As promised, here is the tutorial for the tulle skirt I sewed for Thanksgiving! Credits: My inspiration for this skirt came from a skirt in Anthro's winter line, and from this Etsy seller. What you'll need (total cost of materials was approximately $30): 1. 2. 3. 4" satin ribbon for waistband. 1 yard. 4. 5. Steps: 1. *Note - pleating each layer individually will result in a very full skirt (like mine). 2. 3. 4. Then, you will sew each layer onto a piece of scrap fabric (I used some of the excess liner fabric) that is the same length as your waist measurement, and is approximately 3" wide. 5. Once your circle skirt liner is sewn, it will look something like this: 6. *Note - I didn't have ribbon at this point, so I had to use a strip of satin with unfinished edges that unraveled like crazy. 7. And voila! .... THE END. ...and should all else fail, I'll just leave these here ...

The Shirt Skirt July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. To determine what shirt size you should get, just make sure it will go around you. I like to use thread the same color as my fabric. And that’s it!

Handkerchief Skirt A handkerchief pointed-hem skirt is flattering to all, but especially for short-legged people because the points break up that horizontal hemline. No pattern is needed to make this skirt style. It is a simple block layout. One easy way to get that effect is to hem two squares of fashion fabric, each having four points (called a “handkerchief” hem) and layer them for an eight-pointed look. You will need: 2 ½ yds. of fashion fabric, 45″ wide1 yd. of waist band elastic, 1″ wideCoordinating thread10 yds. of flat ribbon braid (optional) The size of the circular opening should be just big enough to pull over your hips, and can then be tightened with elastic. Cut 2 squares of fabric doubled the finished length. Place template in center of square and trace out. * TIP: Increase or decrease the circle by 1/8″ to change the overall total circumference measurement by 1/2″. Like this: Like Loading...

Umbrella Skirts Like designing your own styles to dress in but not skilled with complex stitching or comfortable with creating new patterns? From their shapes and size to their scale and appearance, skirts and umbrellas have a lot in common – except, perhaps, that when it comes to an umbrella the interior is designed to be seen publicly and thus is as carefully considered and crafted as the exterior … whereas, well, looking up a skirt … that might get you in trouble. But seriously: used umbrella material is a perfect choice in many regards to upcycle into a skirt, dress, other easily-planned piece of refab clothing, as designer Cecilia Felli discovered during her creative umbrella-to-skirt upcycling experiments. Moreover, since umbrellas are well known for breaking down, this provides a simple do-it-yourself way to take advantage of something that frequently falls apart. Umbrellas come in all kinds of colorful, creative and unique patterns that convert readily into skirt material for women or girls.

But I really love how it turned out. Even with my sewing-with-knits intimidation, it was super easy and fast. I added some elastic trim to the hem, though it isn’t necessary. Bonus: This skirt is SUPER comfy. Oh, and the cardi? Do you want to make your very own?

Adjustment: Measure your waist, and subtract 2″.

How To Sew A Fishtail Skirt I thought that I would bring my “fishtail skirt tutorial” over to here from my livejournal, so here you go :) I thought that I would share this little tutorial on how to make a nice fishtail skirt, it is really not that hard as it can look and you will end up with a smashing skirt that makes you look flash were ever you go. You can make this skirt at any length, from the knee and down. I put a triangular panel of ruffles in between the two back panels but this tutorial does not include that and this skirt can be both lined and not lined but I will not give any explanation how to line the skirt. The things you will need for this project is: Fabric, depending on your measurements (I used 6 meters (about 6 yards) of fabric, but I’m not really that petite) Zipper, I use a hidden zipper since they look so good (well they are invisible ;)) A button To start up you need to take these measurements: Waist: Hips: Butt: Now on to making a pattern. Start of with serging all the edges, or use a zigzag.

Super Easy Paper Bag Waist Skirt Tutorial Yesterday I posted a tutorial for how to make what I think of as the classic paper bag skirt—pleats, belt, beltloops. Today, I want to show you the easier option, for those of you who don't want to mess with zippers and pleats. Here are some inspirations for this type of more playful, basic skirt with smaller, modified paper bag top: From Banana Republic: In a crazy cute print like this cute nautical look by Lilly Pulitzer: Or an even crazier print like this Marc by Marc Jacobs: Lots of options, although I still recommend a sturdy bottom-weight material. Refer to the Classic Paper Bag Waist Skirt tutorial for cutting instructions. Grab your elastic (again, somewhere close to 2" smaller than your waist to allow for some movement but also enough tightness to stay up!) When you get all the way through, sew the ends together (again, make sure the elastic's not twisted somewhere along the way). Sew the rest of your seam closed! That's it! Super easy to make and wear!
