A sun skirt is an ideal option for those who seek to create a feminine and sophisticated look. If you want to add it to your wardrobe, the following items are needed:

  • Matter.
  • Sewing machine.
  • Needle with thread.
  • Ruler.

  • A piece of chalk.

How to act?

  1. As for measuring parameters, you only need to measure one - the waist circumference.
  2. Prepare a large surface for work. Spread your matter on it.
  3. Cut a circle in the center. To calculate its radius, multiply the number equal to the circumference of your waist, and divide the resulting figure into two.

  5. Cut the finished workpiece.
  6. The last step is to sew the zipper and elastic belt to the product, and process the bottom of the thing on a sewing machine, stitching with a straight seam.

Summer is the time for vacation and vacation, however, people still go to work. Wearing a regular pencil skirt will sooner or later bother you. We suggest you sew the product with pleats.

  • Atlas.
  • Secret zipper stitch.
  • Non-woven.
  • Threads with a needle.
  • Scissors.
  • Sewing machine.
  • Elastic tape.

How to act?

  • First of all, take measurements. You will need options such as waist circumference and hip circumference.
  • Cut the material in half lengthwise.

Important! So that in the end the skirt does not warp, the lobe should go from top to bottom.

  • You should get two pieces of fabric. It is necessary to fold them and sew them along the side seams with a straight seam. Two-three centimeter allowances are processed with a zigzag.
  • Now we begin to create folds. First, decide on their number. Divide the radius of the top of the skirt by this number. Set them aside on fabric and fix by ironing.
  • Sew a hidden zipper.
  • Wrap the elastic tape with a cloth and sew it to the item, grabbing a seam and a place on top of the folds.

Cotton summer skirt

Another option is to sew a summer skirt out of a comfortable and lightweight cotton:

  • As you might guess, the first thing to do is take measurements. You need to know parameters such as hip, waist, and the length of the desired product.
  • Next, you need to carve two rectangles, one side of which is the length, and the other is the width of the skirt.
  • Based on the waist circumference, cut out the belt, leaving a few centimeters of allowances for the zipper.

Important! For this model you can use an elastic band. In this case, no allowances are needed.

  • Sweep the triangles between each other and sew with a role seam on a typewriter.
  • The last moment is to sew on a zipper or belt.
