Title: Simple Sailor Skirt
Post by: pureeva on July 07, 2009 04:19:09 AM
Simple gathered sailor skirt with partial elastic waistband. It is made of cotton sateen, poly/cotton trim, and a sheer polyester lining. The waist ties are detachable at the front buttons  :) I added the rows of topstitching to the trim after the fact

Fantastic!  This will be a really fun piece for you to wear, although people won't believe you when you say you made it yourself, because it's so neat and precise (not a problem I encounter often lol)

As everyone else has already said, this is great! I love that you could convey the sailor look so simply. It does look like a professional made it, so you should be proud!

lol

It does have partial elastic at the back, but that's mostly for comfort's sake. It's got an invisible zipper closure at the side waist :)

I LOVE it!  I've been looking for a sailor skirt or dress pattern for a long time now.......might you be interested in posting one?

It's quite simple as far as a pattern goes. The skirt is a rectangle 3x wider than my waist, divided into 2 pieces. I cut the waistband piece to be 4.5" x  29.5" (my waist + 3.5" extra for the shirring). I then folded the waistband in half. I sewed the contrasting fabric trim onto the bottoms of the two skirt pieces, then sewed the two skirt pieces together and left an opening for the zipper. Then I gathered the skirt onto the waistband and stitched it down. I added in the shirring (which can be left out) and  closed the waistband by stitching in the ditch. I inserted the invisble zipper. Lastly, I cut a long strip of fabric and folded it into thirds. I sewed this down onto the skirt and DONE!

I have a seam allowance of .5" for all pieces, with French seam finishes

this is adorable and it sounds pretty easy to make one! i'd probably leave the shirring out and change the colors (i can totally see this turning not-so-white within days of me making it, haha), but i definitely want to make one now.
