I just made my first skirt, I'm so happy!
It took me about a day to make it.
What do you think?
I have made a tutorial, I'm a beginner so it may not be the best way to do it. If you have suggestions please let me know!
Tutorial for skirt with lining:
Note: Colored fabric on these pictures is the right side of the fabric.
Note 2: I'm dutch, so there can be some mistakes in the text.
Make a pattern using a measuring tape.
tw = waist.
so the first circle is 1/3 of your waist minus 1 cm.
Hold the beginning of the measuring tape at the black dot and turn the end to make a nice circle.
Cut the pattern out of folded fabric. Keep on side at the fold.
Add 2 cm at the waist and open side, add 4 at the bottom.
Sew from the bottom till the zipper. Turn it around and iron in your folds from bottom to top.
Sew in the zipper. I pin the zipper first to make the fabric overlap the zipper. Then I turned the skirt and handstitched the zipper clossest peace of fabric. Remove the pins and sew!
Now make an inner skirt (the same way as you made the outer skirt). Sew it on the zipper the same way, but then on the other side and further away from the zipper. This picture is how it looks after sewing, if you want to sew the zipper to the innerskirt you have to have the wrong sides out.
To make the top put the skirt inside out, with the right sides to eachother and put a waistband in the middle.
I pinned it, handstitched it and then sewed it.
Turn the dress and sew over the innerskirt and the waistband.
To finish the bottom I folded the 4 cm twice and pinned, handstitched and sewed.
Finish off your seams with a zig zag stitch.
