One-Hour Skirt
by Brett Bara Follow

A cute, quick and easy skirt as featured in my book, Sewing in a Straight Line (Potter Craft, 2011). You can make it in about an hour, and it's easy enough for beginners, I promise!



See the entire tutorial for this skirt in the video!

    How do you keep the elastic from twisting? And how do I undo it if it already happened?

    Instead of 22 & 1/2, what is a good length for short people (about 5 ft. tall)?

    Because I really was wondering

    I have this book and love it. The projects are great for beginners. I've already made this skirt twice, because I love it so much. Here's my first version of the skirt. I also made a fun nautical one.  :)
