How To Stitch A Dress Skirt
For Imitation and Formal costumes, the right length of dress skirt is essential. For formals, the length should be suitable for the occasion, and for imitation costumes, it should be comfortable.
To decide on the right length of the dress skirt, lay the dress flat and measure the floor. The steps will be slightly different, but you can do the same thing for both. Start counting from the floor to the floor. In the example below, the length is 2 feet 5 inches, which makes 40 inches.
2 feet 5 inches x 40 inches =ERA mark, to make 2×4 fabric
Step 1: Cut a 45-inch square of fabric
Step 2: Lay the dress along one side, with the wrong sides together.
Step 3: Starting at a 45-inch right angle, along the right side down, cut along the horizontal right edge of the 2 foot square. The squares should now measure 45-inches (2 meters or 2.5 meters).
Step 4: Fold the 2 foot square into ½ inch to form a 5 inch square.
Step 5: Left go around to the right and up to the left, then right the way around and down to the right. When you have done this 4 or 5 times, turn the dress over and mark the yellow line with a pencil for later reference.
Step 6: Stitch along the inside edge of the 5 inch square
Step 7: Turn the fitted side of the dress back outward towards your body, to the left side, and up to the middle of the garment. Sort out the fabrics according to their position.
Step 8: Stitch the dress halt, along the wrong side, and back to the inside to finish. (If the skirt is long, trim with a curler attachment, if short, trim with a straight edge)
Dress rounds and waistbands are easier to stitch than skirt front. For round skirts, you can thread two or three times the length of fabric being used (for example, if the skirt are 2 feet or 3 foot long, you could go with 3 or 5 times the length of the fabric being used). For waistbands, do the same thing as for dresses.
These basic sew-on garments can take an odd number of stitches on a sewing machine and too many stitches overall on a hand sewing machine, if you are missing stitches, your garment won’t fit right.
If you do not have a seam allowance, you can read a few blogs and see what they did to solve this problem.
To start, mark the seam allowance with a Pigma micronepad so that you know where to stitch for the next step to avoid the seam allowances accidentally becoming a part of the garment. There are also a variety of YouTube videos you can watch and help you determine what you should stitch.
If one piece doesn’t fit right, just turn the garment inside out, wrong sides exposed, and re-flow the gutters on the bottom of the clothesline and redo your next garment. And it looks even better the second time around.
