9581Re: skirt (was hi!)
- Feb 12, 2007What I did for my first skirt was measure around my waist, since it's smaller then 45 inches (the smaller industry standard for cloth, the other is 60 inches) I knew I would use the whole width of the fabric. Then I measured from my waist to the floor, and that was the length.
So I go to the fabric store, find the cloth I want, and have them cut it the length. I also get two yards of light rope/braid. (I had thread at home)
When I get home I wash, dry, and iron the fabric. Then I fold it "Out" sides together and sew a straight seam along the length. Then I fold a half inch hem on one end, leaving a small opening to run the braid through. This is now the top of the skirt. Then I put it on to find out how much of the bottom I needed to turn up so I didn't walk on it, then I hem that up and the skirt is done.
If your waist is bigger or if you want more fullness: double the length and after you wash it cut it in half and sew two side seams instead of one.
I hope this helps,
