Create Your Own Custom Skirt and Take Over the World :)


Good morning and Happy Saturday!!!

Check out this great Custom Skirt video on You Tube that I found this morning. She shows you how to draft a custom pattern and how to construct the skirt complete with an invisible zipper, a blind hem, and waistband.

You could use this when sewing from scratch or when upcycling thrift store clothes for the just the right fit.

I know what my next project will be. The navy and white polka dot fabric from the thrift store is PERFECT for this.

Stay tuned………

Let me know if you try this, too. I’d love to post your finished skirt pictures.

    Great video! Here’s a link to some better paper to use, http://www.amazon.com/36-Inch-5-Yards-Tracing-Vellum-Paper/dp/B0027A7DVA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358714619&sr=8-2&keywords=roll+vellum. I use this all the time. It’s lightweight, transparent, and strong. Perfect for tracing patterns off of the multi-sized patterns. I buy it at my local university, but not everyone has one of those round the corner.

    On the skirt pattern, do you not add a seam allowance (1/2 or 3/8) to theyour finished example? Thanks for the video. I think I’ll try this now.
