ankle-length, A-line, skirt

Hello!

This was my first trial of making an A-line skirt; 100% hand-stitching. I have learnt through this first experience on how to hand-sew things better and nicer - to fasten the snap buttons neatly, to sew hems and seams on clothes, and et cetera. YEA! ♥

.....

UPDATED (2nd February 2011):

It was originally a "creation", but I decided to convert it into a "how-to". I've to honestly admit that I am not good in giving instructions neither a talented seamstress, but, hopefully you'll get
the basic grasp (in sewing this simple A-line skirt) that I am trying to share it with you.

You may add anything to your skirt as creative as you can be. Have fun! :D

Instructions

  1. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 1 1

    I'll be using an A4 paper in this instruction (as a replica for our cloth :P )

  2. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 2 2

    Equally fold your cloth into two.

  3. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 3 3

    Measure your waist and your ankle-length.

    Make a pattern that somewhat looks like this.

    REMEMBER: We are working on the inside of your cloth (or some people would say, "the wrong side of fabric")

  4. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 4 4

    From that waist part, make a mark where you'll sew your zip. Preferably a short one; mine is only 9.5".

  5. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 5 5

    Cut your cloth according to that pattern.

    Don't forget to save an extra of 1-2 inches for sewing.

  6. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 6 6

    After you have finished cutting, it would look something like this.




  7. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 7 7

    If you don't have a sewing machine (like me), double fold all edges (using that extra 2 inches) and nicely sew a straight line through it.

    If you have an over-lock sewing machine, simply use it to trim the edges.

  8. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 8 8

    Starting from the bottom of your cloth till the end your zip part, sew a straight line.

  9. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 9 9

    After you have finished sewing that straight line, it would look something like this (from its front view).

  10. How to make an a-line skirt. A Line Skirt (Dark Brown) - Step 10 10

    This is the back your of skirt. Carefully sew your zip now.

    I made a rectangular band and sewn it along my waist part. Then, I had also sewn a few snap buttons there. I think it'd be nicer and more secure.

    Turn your skirt inside out. You are finished.
