1 panel fabric + 1 elastic = hello sunshine!
A quick and simple sewing project with a sunny result!
But how do you divide those gathers nice and evenly? And how do you prevent them from moving in all directions while stitching them to the elastic?
This tutorial shows you our secret! A step-by-step guide, perfect for beginners. Also worth a look if you are an advanced seamstress: maybe this way suits you better than the classic way!
Do you want the same skirt as we made in this tutorial? We used:
- Handprinted fabric panel Bromelia 012 (but our other fabrics are also eligible)
- Wide elastic orange (we also have hand-printed elastics or other solid colors)
- We combined with a sweater in French Terry “visit dia”.
In our next tutorial you will learn how to put pockets on your gathered skirt!
