How long does it take to sew a skirt?
Seriously, start to finish this one takes about 45 minutes (give yourself more time if you’re new to sewing, but before long you’ll be able to crank these out in that time frame, promise!). And you can make it in ANY size. To make a simple skirt you’ll need: 1″ wide elastic.
How do you sew a skirt at home?
- Fold fabric matching right sides and straight stitch from waist to hem, this will form a tube. Press seam open.
- Wrap elastic around your natural waist; add 1″ for overlap and cut. Join elastic together by overlapping and stitching with a straight stitch. *tip- use matching thread.
