{Reader Tutorial} A line skirt with pockets

August is all about YOU! We will be sharing ‘Reader Tutorials’ for the next 3 weeks as we are all busy with our family, but never fear, come September we will all be back into the swing of things and sharing our normal mix of crafty goodness.


This A Line Skirt Tutorial from Sewing Bee Fabrics UK has full step by step photos and instructions on how to make a made to measure a line skirt with a zipper and top button fastening, with pockets.

What you need:

Cotton (this would also work well in other non-stretch fabrics such as linen. Polycottons can be a bit more see through when the light hits and lack body so may need lining to work as well). You will need approximately 1 metre but I would recommend making up your pattern first as depending on your size, will determine exactly how much you’ll need.

A zipper

A button

A little bit of medium interfacing the size of your waistband.
