I made three alterations to the pattern:

  • used elastic band instead of making fabric belt, so I don’t have to use zipper
  • shortened the length of the skirt from 36 inches to 20 inches
  • widened the skirt at a waste by 10 inches total (so I can wear it by pulling through my head)

Making Summer Skirt: Steps

  1. Wash and iron the fabric.
  2. I drew the pattern directly on the fabric. Cut.
  3. Sew the six pattern details together. I used overlock to finish the seems.

4. Press the seams.

5. Attach the elastic at the top of the skirt. I used golden colored elastic to match golden outline around the white flowers on the skirt’s fabric.

 

Done! Enjoy your new skirt 🙂

 

I’m thinking of making a navy blue blouse out of some sheer fabric to go along with the skirt. What do you think?
