Description

Hello,

If you wish to make this skirt use the credited pattern. If you have anyone questions fell free to ask.

So, this project is so easy. Well for someone who is a little more experienced with their machine, if your a novice it may take a little longer. If you are going to make a skirt , I full recommend doing the ruffles by hand, and not the gather foot. It will allow for a precise gather and good manipulation. This skirt took 5 hours to make and to draft off a Burda pattern. I tool the pattern and cut a out rectangle to the right of my body. This will add two seams and placement for where the ruffles to end.

Then I made the lining which I drafted off the sewn skirt. I recommend something light for the lining. I used a light plaid for my outer fabric. I mainly chose this because it was on super sale, which made it affordable.

I used a overall 8 cm hem, it was double rolled. I made the waist band and moved the zipper to the hip. I then choose to do three rows of ruffles.You could do the whole front in ruffles if you wanted. I zig zaged and stitched the edges. Then I put my machine on the longest and looses stitch to gather the fabric. I laied the ruffles the opposite way I wanted to them to go and zig zaged the ruffle to the skirt. I flipped them over and tacked down the edges in the top left and right corner.

Lastly, buttons. I added three decorative buttons to the top of the skirt.

Love
LR.
