The structure of the pattern is not the most favorite step during sewing for many. But you can easily do without it by making a skirt in just half an hour.
What is required
- elastic band wide
- the cloth
- sewing machine
How to make
Cut the elastic to the width of your waist plus two centimeters. For a fabric width of 2.5 m, measure the length you have chosen plus 2 cm.
Fold the bottom edge of the fabric a centimeter and iron it across the entire width.
Make another fold and repeat ironing from the beginning. Secure with pins. Sew the fold close to the inner edge.
Set the maximum stitch length on the machine. Stitch the entire length of the opposite raw edge.
Pulling the threads of the stitch just laid, gather the fabric to the length of the elastic. Tie the thread from one side to a knot.
Singe the edges of the elastic, attach it on one side, slightly letting go of the fabric. Fasten with clips.
Sew on a typewriter about an inch from the edge. Match the edges of the folds with the elastic. Sew slowly with a regular stitch. Remove the seam with which the edge was gathered.
Pin the unsewn edge with pins. Sew along the entire length. Fold the elastic to one side and sew.
