Everyday Basics: The Everyday Skirt

Everyday Basics: The Everyday Skirt

I’ve seen these types of skirts in Old Navy and Target, and they aren’t very expensive.  But I thought I would try to make one myself and see how fast a project it turned out to be.
Goodness knows I have enough fabric.
P.S. I went to LA again this past week…and bought some more amazing knits.  It was so fun.  And I met Dana of MADE  {we were wearing the same outfit…ha} and Ashley of Lil Blue Boo.  Randomly.  It was so much fun.

 

I made mine a little more fitted than the ones at Old Navy, but if you wanted it looser, all you would have to do would be to angle the sides out a couple inches more on each side.  When trying mine on, I liked the midi length, but you could make any length you like.  So versatile.
And so comfortable.
I made a pattern for those of you medium sized girls.  If you are smaller or larger, just adjust the pattern a bit.  It is a super simple pattern.  Just know, that this skirt would need to be larger if your knit is a 4way stretch fabric or super thin and clingy.
Want to make one?

Materials: About one yard of fabric

Pattern (Scribd…not working so well for people)
Pattern (Google Docs)
1. Tape pattern together and cut out 2 skirt pieces.

**Make sure you use a stretch stitch for attaching the waistband…or serger.  
A narrow zigzag is great.

Try on skirt, figure out where you want the hem, and cut off any necessary.

Hem skirt.

**Update**
To make a custom size, measure your waist.  Divide by two. This number will
be the measurement of the top of the skirt.  The bottom of my skirt is about 10″ wider than the top.
To make it looser/flowier add from there.  For your waistband, measure your waist and subtract about 3 inches depending on how stretchy your fabric is.  With some thinner knits, they stretch out, and you may want to go smaller.

  1. I my waist is 40″ and I divide by 2, the skirt will measure 20″ at the waist? that doesn’t sound right to me.

    1. I’m assuming she has a 28-inch waist. So the top pattern would be 14 inches across in the bottom pattern would be 14 inches across and then when she saw them together the circle will be big enough for a 28-inch waist. Your waist band should be 40 inches long, but the 2 actual individual skirt patterns should be 20 inches at the top so when you sew them, they will fit your waist. I hope that makes sense.

    2. The fabric is folded over (double). The top of your skirt, with the fabric folded together, should measure about 14 inches across, so when you open the fabric, the total top measurement across should be about 37 to 38 inches, depending on how stretchy your fabric is.

    3. 20″ front + 20″ back = 40″ but the instructions are ambiguous.

    4. That’s right except you’re cutting 2 pieces (a front and a back) so when you sew them together it will fit!

    5. You’d cut 2 pieces at 20″ front and back

  2. About how much fabric would I need for this pattern? Love it by the way.

  3. While looking at the striped skirt, I got a “Sewing idea moment” and thought about making the back side of the skirt a solid black. It would do double duty and be a great conversation item when you meet friends for lunch.

  4. Thanks so much for this tutorial. I used it to make a really cute skirt!
