This dress is from the same pattern as the blue flower one posted earlier It just does not have as many tiers.
I am so proud of myself for this one. I should have made you all a tutorial for it but the basics are:
Lay out a skirt that you like on top of the fabric you are going to use. Cut out 2 pieces of fabric in the shape of the skirt but make sure to allow enough for a seam allowance. When I was doing this I forgot to account for the elastic waist so the first try barely fit over my hips. That skirt has now been gifted to my lil sis.
Next sew those two pieces together on the long side. I used my serger for this.
Then fold over the top 1/4 inch and sew it down. You might want to iron it over first before sewing. I am lazy and did not do that.
Then fold over the top again but this time do it wide enough for your elastic and sew the fabric in that position.
Then fold over the bottom 1/4 inch and sew around the skirt. and repeat for a nice finished look.
Easy Peasy. This is the first womans size skirt that I have made. But it is only the 6th piece of clothing that I have ever made.
Right now I am working on another skirt this one is much fancier and I am actually using a pattern but I really need an invisible zipper and a little of my moms help to make sure I do it right. Apparently you need an invisible zipper foot to sew in a zipper. Who would have thought :)
