How to make a skater skirt
Step 1 – Cut out the following and begin to sew
You will need to assemble the pattern. For instructions on how to assemble the sewing pattern click here.
Cut 2 skirt panels (each on fold) and 1 waistband. IMPORTANT: follow the grain/stretch lines indicated on the waistband pattern piece.
To assemble the skirt, stitch the side seams, right sides together, to form a donut-like shape.
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.
Pin the waistband to the right side of the skirt. You will need to slightly stretch the waistband to fit it to the skirt. Stitch.
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.
