The simplest way to sew a beautiful skirt – just cut 2 pieces of fabric in the shape of 1/4 of a circle and sew them together on the sides. The length of the skirt depends on the length of the material minus about 30 cm for the waist. You can decorate the edge with 2 or 3 rows of lace ribbons.
About 3m of viscose, thread, elastic band (4-5 cm wide), scissors, sewing machine, 3-5 m of lace ribbon of your choice (optional)
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
