This instructable is about a simple skirt with a little embellishment.
The skirt in this example will close with hook and eye fastenings.
For a more proffesional product, sew in a zipper.
You will need to have some experience with a sewing machine.
You will need to know:
You will need:
2 yards of fabric without an obvious direction.*
Sewing machine, threaded with thread about the same color as your fabric.
Hook & eye fasteners.
*If you can tell if the pattern on the fabric is upside down, my layout won't be the best option for you.
In my example skirt, I am using a contrasting thread so you can see all my mistakes.
Step 1: Wash Your Fabric
Unless your fabric says dry clean only, or it is mystery material with what feels like a rubber coating on the back, toss it in the wash.
For most normal cottons and blends, give it a run in the dryer and a quick iron.
