Step 1 – Cut out the following for the skirt and begin to sew
You will need to assemble the FREE pattern. For instructions on how to assemble the FREE sewing pattern click here.
Cut the following piece for the waistband out of the contrast fabric. Ensure the amount of greatest stretch is parallel to the longer side (to go around the body).
Small: 9″ x 23.5″
Medium: 9″ x 25″
Large: 9″ x 26.5″
Extra Large: 9″ x 28″
Cut 1 main skirt piece on the fold. IMPORTANT: follow the grain/stretch lines indicated on the waistband pattern piece. If you plan on leaving the bottom edge raw (like I did) make sure to keep you cut as clean as possible with sharp scissors and slow cutting.
Seam allowances are 1/2″.
Step 2 – Sew the waistband
With right sides facing, sew the short ends of the waistband together to form a loop.
Fold it over, wrong sides facing.
Since knit fabric doesn’t fray, you can leave the bottom hem plain, or do a narrow hem, or a rolled hem on your serger if you prefer. I left my bottom edge raw.
That’s it! I love how fast and comfortable this skirt is, as a matter of fact it’s so great that there’s an child version of this skirt as well! You can check out that Free Pattern here.
