Hi guys, today I will like to share with you easy steps to sew a half-circle skirt.
I explain below easy steps to sew a half-circle skirt using the video links for each step. You can check my previous post on how to create the pattern for the skirt here.
Half Circle Skirt Tutorial
Step 1: Staystitching of the skirt
Staystitch the front waist and the back waist of the skirt to prevent it from stretching out of shape.
Step 2: Attach The Zip
Attach the zip to the skirt back pieces. Attaching the zips before sewing the side seams makes it an easier process. Hence I have made it the second step in the Easy steps to sew a half circle skirt.
Step 3: Attach The Pocket
Attach the pocket pieces to the side seams (skip this step if you are not adding pockets). Ensure the you place the right side of the fabric for the pocket over the right side of the fabric for the skirt. You will attach each pocket piece to the front side seams and back side seams.
Step 4: Sew The Skirt Side Seams
Sew the skirt side seams. Avoid stretching the fabric as you sew. Remember that fabric cut on bias can easily stretch. To help you keep the sides in place and aligned properly, use pins to hold the two side seams in place and remove the pins as you sew.
Step 5: Iron the Side Seans
Next, press the side seams. Remember pressing the seams as you sew allows you to achieve a professional finish!
Step 6: Attach The Waistband
Attaching the waistband. Ensure that you have prepared your waistband and pressed them ready to sew as this makes your sewing process faster.
Hem the skirt edge if need be.
Hurray! Your skirt is now ready for you to rock!
