I made this skirt for both an adult and children with their individual measurements with great success. My daughters wear theirs all the time.

These skirts are so simple they are the perfect base for any embellishments you want to add like side seam pockets, patch pockets, a faux button placket, a lace overlay, or a DIY border print.

This project is great for lightweight to mediumweight woven fabric that’s easy to work with. You can use fabrics such as quilting cotton, chambray, cotton lawn, broadcloth, eyelet, swiss dot, etc.

I used a red chambray for my daughters and a linen rayon blend for my skirt. I also made a colorblocked striped one with polyester fabric.

Fold the back waistband over in half and then fold the 1/2″ seam allowance under. Pin it so it covers the previous stitching.

Stitch in the ditch from the outside to secure the waistband inside. Only sew the back waistband section from one side seam to the other side seam.

Cut the elastic to half of your original waist measurement.

Insert the elastic into the created casing and tack at each side seam.

Thanks for this great easy skirt tutorial. I can never find skirts long enough so I can’t wait to try making my own.

I just ordered the flat front skirt pattern and I had a typo in my email address. I typed [email protected]. It should be [email protected]. Thank you!!

Hello ! I really like your pattern and i’d love to download it and try sewing something nice, I signed up to your newsletter and it sent me the password but it’s not working, it keeps telling me “This content is password protected. To view it please enter your password below:”
I don’t really know what’s wrong, could you help me please?

I’ve signed up for your newsletter and now I can’t get your free patterns. I used the password once but when I left the site and Diane back to it I saw no way to retrieve the pattern again.
Thanks,
Keilla
