Easy Elastic Waist Skirt

This is a very easy-to-sew skirt with just enough elastic to be able to get it on and off and does not have the bulk of extra gathers. Choose to make a basic A-line elastic waist skirt or a six-panel elastic waist skirt. You will learn how to fit the skirt to you, how to cut out, finish seams, make an elastic casing and hem. You will take home your custom fit pattern so you can make it again. 

Supplies needed for Elastic Waist Skirt:

Classic Clothing skirt pattern: Choose either the basic Elastic Waist Skirt (L3101) or the Six-Panel Elastic Waist Skirt (L3300). We have samples at Simply Fabrics that you can try on to determine what size will fit you and which style you want to make.

Please purchase, prewash and dry your fabric prior to the class. A wide range of fabrics are suitable for this skirt: lightweight denim, twill, suiting, cotton, poly/cotton blends and most light- to medium-weight wovens. Fabrics with some cotton content are going to be easier to sew than a polyester fabric. Do not use slippery or stretchy fabrics and preferably not a plaid. Choose a fabric that is 54”- 60” wide.
13/4 - 1 7/8 yards needed for basic A-line skirt
13/4 - 2 1/2 yards needed for six-panel skirt

3/4” wide non-roll elastic – 2/3 to 1 1/4 yard

Medium-weight interfacing – approx. a 3”x 12” piece. You will not need interfacing if you want to do elastic all the way around (see sketches of variations on pattern cover).
