Posted by on Mar 18, 2015 in Fitted Skirt, Lessons, Projects, Sewing | Comments Off on Fitted Skirt – Materials List

This is Step 1 in a series of lessons dedicated to help you design and make your own fitted waist skirt.

For your fitted waist skirt, you’ll need the following:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Seam allowance tool
  • Straight edge
  • Paper scissors
  • Fabric scissors
  • A bottom-weight fabric
  • A lining fabric
  • Iron-on interfacing
  • A zipper, approximately 4 inches in length
  • Hook & Bar closure (Not a hook and eye. A hook and bar. Read the packages in your notions section.)
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Machine needles
  • A zipper foot for your sewing machine

There are also some tools that are useful in this project, but not necessarily required. As we go along, I’ll be talking about these tools, why they’re useful, and some ways to get around them that aren’t always the best, but can work.

  • A Hip Curve
  • Tracing Wheel – smooth or serrated
  • Tracing paper
