Now that you know how to make your own pattern, go grab a skirt from your own wardrobe (or a sister’s or a friend’s), and make your own version using the skillset you just learned! This sewing tutorial will show you how to sew a skirt. Once you know how to sew a skirt, just add a top and you’re ready to make a dress! This is our 2nd project, gather your supplies and get started!

In this lesson you will learn:

  • How to make a basic elastic skirt with only 1 yard of fabric
  • How to cut your fabric
