It is necessary

  • - 60 or 80 cm of dense fabric keeping the shape;
  • - Concealed zipper 20 cm long;
  • - tape measure;
  • - scissors;
  • - threads to match the fabric;
  • - sewing machine.


Step 1

Build a pattern for the base of the skirt. Using this pattern, you can create many models, including those on the hips. In addition, a skirt made according to such a pattern will fit you perfectly. Step-by-step instructions for building a pattern can be found at

Step 2

After the base pattern is ready, set aside the desired fit from the top line down the vertical and draw a parallel line. If you want the skirt to sit fairly low, then cut off the darts at the front. Cut out the part of the belt (if it is stitched) along the cut off upper part of the base pattern, and if you want to sew a skirt without a belt, then cut a one-piece edging along the upper part of the pattern of the product.

Step 3

Fold the fabric in half with the right side inward. Lay the pattern of the skirt on the fabric as follows: the part in front of the middle line to the fold, and next to it, place the part of the back of the skirt. Circle all the contours with tailor's chalk, leave a seam allowance of 1, 5 centimeters. Cut the belt or one-piece hem from the remnants of the fabric.

Step 4

On the details of the front and rear, make darts, iron them towards the side line. Fold the back pieces together right-side up and sweep. Then fold the front and back part with the right sides inward and also sweep.

Step 5

Try on, if the skirt is a little wide, then put the excess fabric in the side seam, and if it is a little small, then release the fabric from the seam allowances. Adjust the fit and length of the skirt, then sew all seams on the sewing machine. Leave about ten centimeters unstitched for the zipper at the middle seam at the back. Overcast and press all seams.

Step 6

Sew in the zipper. For a skirt with a low waistline, it is best to use a hidden zipper. To grind it, it is most convenient to use a special foot.

Step 7

To the seamy side of the belt or trim piece, glue the non-woven fabric with an iron. Pin off the top of the skirt and waistband and sew on a typewriter, then fold to the wrong side and sew again. Iron the top of the skirt. Sew a flat button to the belt to match the fabric, work on the fastener on the other half. If you are sewing a skirt without a belt, then sew a hook as a fastener.

Step 8

Try another fit. Fit the bottom of the skirt. Trim off excess fabric and machine hem. Iron the product. The skirt on the hips is ready.
