How to Sew Pencil Skirt

Sewing tutorial

And if we were a pencil skirt ? But an easy pencil skirt, without tongs, without zipper.So, if that’s possible! With United stretch fabric or
patterns. If it works, we can even be several, why not, once we have the

model… Need you, in addition to the fabric and the sewing machine thread sewing, pattern paper (or a white paper tablecloth), tailor chalk, a centimeter to take measures and scissors of course.

A simplified pencil skirt

After choosing your fabric, just follow our sewing tutorial: the pencil skirt and to you the compliments!

First step: take its measures

Measure your waist.

Also measure around the widest part of your Anatomy, noted as your hips (in principle for this kind of boss are the hips but we do not necessarily have the same proportions).

Measure the distance between your waist and hips again

And the distance between your hips and your knees, there where you want your skirt.

NB: For a generally pencil skirt is either just above the knee, or knee.

Second step: establish the boss

Part 1:

Draw a rectangle on a sheet of paper pattern.

The width of the rectangle will be equal to your hips turn divided by 4 + 3 cm for the ease of the seams.

Its height will be equal to the distance from waist to hips + distance from hips to knees + 12 cm (6 cm for the belt and 6 cm for the bottom hem).

For example!

  • for a tour of hips of 140 cm, width note will be 35 cm + 3 cm = 38 cm
  • for the length of the skirt with a distance of 12 cm between the size and the hips and a distance of 36 cm between the hips and the knees, the height of the rectangle shall be 48 cm + 12 cm or 60 cm.

Part 2:

We must now redefine the proportions of the skirt as follows: (see image below)

A’ to point B: measurement of the waist divided by 4 + 3 cm for stitching.

Point B to D: measure the distance between size and hips + 6 cm for the belt.

Connect point A’ to point C by a smooth curve.

On the hem of bottom measure 6 cm from the left side and mark the point E’.

Connect the point C to point E’ by a curve.

Cut your boss.

Third step: choose fabric sound

This pencil skirt you to a slightly stretch fabric, such as a jersey.

For the film depends on the measures taken above and the width of your fabric.

If you find a fabric that is at least 2 x the width of the rectangle of your boss then you take 2 heights.

But what if the width of the chosen fabric is narrower than the required width?

In this case I would advise taking the width (2 x the width of your rectangle of base) necessary in the sense of the length. It will probably fall a little less well but it should go because it’s a stretch fabric… (That the purists are hiding the eyes!)

Provide also of the sewing thread in a color that matches your fabric (knowing that if it is not exactly the desired shade, it is better then take a darker shade).

Step 4: cut the fabric

Fold your fabric in half, place against place.

Place your boss with the fold along the right side of your boss.

Pin the pattern to the fabric.

Cut around the boss (the width of the seams is understood in this pattern), it is not necessary to add it back.

You have the first half of your skirt.

Repeat this step for the second half.

Fifth step: sewing

A – Epinglez your two pieces on the side of place against side place.

B thread the two parts following the curve of the skirt leaving 1.5 cm for lescoutures side to temporarily fix these two pieces.

C-Try your skirt inside out to see to adjust it in some places. Correct me if necessary with pins, leaving 1 cm of game for sewing.

D-Carefully remove the skirt and mark if necessary the new seam with a tailor chalk line.

E-Sew seams side thus redefined with 1 point stretch with a seam at 1.5 cm from the edge.

F make the belt by folding the top over a width of 3 cm, fold a second time, PIN and stitch along hem to + or – 2 mm.

G-Do the same for the bottom hem.

This is. If you’ve been following our tutorial: pencil skirt, you see it is not so difficult to make clothes to its exact measures, provided for the good advice.

Do not hesitate to send us photos of your creations!
