Super Easy Patternless A-Line Skirt

February 18, 2007

Sometimes you just feel like a simple skirt with nice, clean lines. And you don’t have a whole lot of fabric. This easy skirt is perfect! You’ll need two times the length that you want for the skirt. (So if you want a skirt that’s 25 inches long, you’ll need 50 inches of fabric, or about 1.5 yards.)

And if you want to see the directions, you’ll need to head over to my new blog. http://blvddesigns.wallypop.net/?p=26

  4. Actually I’d prefer if you’d link to the post in my current blog. http://blvddesigns.wallypop.net/?p=26


  5. Can you give more detail about how to sew a waistband? I’ve only sewn simple curtains (straight line sewing) and I really don’t have a clue about how to sew the waistband. Is it difficult?

  6. Can I add to the waistband of this pattern and use elastic instead of the zipper and button? I love the pattern and it is what I have been looking for.

  8. Fab instructions, thank you very much. I may well be trying this out this evening.

  9. this is so great, thanks. anybody who is reading this pattern and thinks “that is too simple to work” should try it! Trust the numbers and your own measurements — waaay better than any commercial skirt pattern I have ever made. I made this in less than an hour and I’m wearing it now! Gonna make six more this weekend. This is my new uniform!

  10. Thanks very much for sharing these instructions. I just made the skirt for my 4 year old. I used a yard of fabric and didn’t bother with a waistband (just turned it over a few times at the top). It’s a cute skirt! I’ll try one for myself next.
