1 panel fabric + 1 elastic = hello sunshine!
A quick and simple sewing project with a sunny result!
But how do you divide those gathers nice and evenly? And how do you prevent them from moving in all directions while stitching them to the elastic?
This tutorial shows you our secret! A step-by-step guide, perfect for beginners. Also worth a look if you are an advanced seamstress: maybe this way suits you better than the classic way!
Do you want the same skirt as we made in this tutorial? We used:
- Handprinted fabric panel Bromelia 012 (but also our other handprinted polyester viscose fabrics are eligible)
- Wide elastic orange (we also have hand-printed elastics or other solid colors)
- We combined with a sweater in French Terry “visit dia”.
