Made one, and have fabric waiting to make another! Other than that I think it will be great. Im a 15 yr old making skirts for a project and i think i just found the treasure. The fabric I used is just cotton but not as thin as muslin. With the top placed right at my rib cage, the bottom touches the floor I am 5' 4".

New with tags 40, New without tags 13, New with defects I found your blog off Pinterest and love all I've seen so far. Wow, can't believe you replied so promptly. So my waist size is 45 inches. I've done some calculations and I think I'm going to need to do three panels. Can you help me out with measurements etc Again, LOVE your blog and it's nice to see you actually respond to your fans!!
Ok so here's what I've come up with Other wise you could do the main body 44"w x 22"h it just won't be as full. If you do piece it together in three panels I would do 17"w x 22"h panels.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help! I'm going to pick up supplies today if all goes as planned , but I am relatively new at sewing so we'll see how long it takes to finish.
I don't really have a blog, but I'll definitely post a link to some pictures when I'm done. You've been so sweet and helpful, and I'm excited to see what a plus-sized version turns out like! Oh and thanks for the offer for the fabric. I'm going to a store today to see what I can find, but I may just buy some from you! I'll keep you posted. I will try it really soon!
I found your tutorial via pinterest, and whipped one up this afternoon. I had to size it up, since I wear a 14, but is was really easy to do. This was the first time I have ever sewn anything adult sized, and the first time I have installed a zipper, and the whole thing only took a little more than an hour. Thank you so much for your wonderful directions, I am a new subscriber: Adrienne, Thank you so much for the kind words!
I'm so glad it worked out so well and I so appreciate the feedback. I often wonder if I've been thorough enough or if anyone ever makes any of this stuff so I'm so excited you did! I am in the making the skirt now Seems obvious now that I have already done it but might help someone out!
No worries though, I am just going to make a fabric flower in place of the bow. Hey Meliss, Thanks for sharing this, I've made this skirt 4 times from 2 yards of fabric and have had leftovers everytime: Hope it turned out cute anyway! And thanks for checking out my blog! Just did a post: Wow Stacy that's just awesome!
Thanks for sharing this with me, its so encouraging: Hello Amy, I adore this skirt and would love to make it. I always have a hard time figuring out measurements. I was wondering if it was possible for you to tell me the measurements I would need to cut out.
My waist is 35 inches. I'm so sorry it's taken me a few days to get back to you! Ok so most fabrics come in a 44" width, I only used 33" for the main body pieces so you will want to use the full 44" width. The sash you'll want to do to pieces 6" x 44". I recommend 2 yards of fabric for this skirt but it usually leaves some fabric leftover. It may be just enough for these measurement or you might get a little extra to be safe.
Good luck and I hope this turns out awesome for you! You mentioned on another post that you might seriously consider making one for someone Hey Jeska Lauren, I do make things per request: If you could, please check out my "shop" tab at the top of the page and it will tell you how it all goes down right now. Thanks so much for your interest and checking out my blog! I wanted to write to thank you for your tutorial. I used it as a guide to create the bottom for my first dress, and I am in love with the final product.
Thank you so much! Thanks so much for the encouraging and thoughtful words! THIS is what keeps me going! And that dress you made is sooooo cute! I found this on pinterest Defiantly glad i found it! I now know my next sewing adventure! My gathering step is not working. How is it supposed to work?
Just sewing two stitch lines and pulling one of them? Hi Taylor, To get the gather all you have to do is set your sewing machine to the loosest stitch possible. Stitch one line, NOT back stitching at the ends, and then another line that runs parallel to the first one.
Then you'll take one of the strings and pull it tight and push the fabric down along the thread. It can get stuck but just keep working it. You will need to try the other end as well to get the other side gathered. I hope you find this helpful and good luck! I came across this tutorial on Pinterest and it is just amazing! I can't wait to try it out, thank you!
My daughter and I made these skirts today. We had so much fun! Thank you for the wonderful instructions. I want to send you pictures, but I am not that tech savy. We had to increase the fabric amounts to accomodate our sizes and our skirts seem much fuller than your, but still cute.
We added pockets too. I choose a terrible material because it kept fraying, especially when I was doing the gathering, but I love it! Thank you so much!! Annette, Thank you so much for sharing this with me! I'm so glad you had such a good time doing it and how fun to do it with your daughter.
I hope my daughter will want to do this stuff with me when she gets older: Almost finished making this skirt. Not sure it will look as good as yours as its only my 3rd sewing project! Loving how easy it is though! Cant wait for project 4 your other high waisted skirt! What a fantastic skirt! I am so glad it has gottn so much love in the comments section! I hope you will consider uploading a photo of it into SewSet, the new on-line sewing directory so more people can find it and you as well!
Thanks so much for sharing! I love this skirt!!! I just made it using an old fitted sheet in a pretty green color. One question, I had trouble with the gathering. After sewing the two lose lines are you supposed to pull just one thread of the top line or the bottom or one of each?
I just pulled one thread of the top line and I guess it worked 'cause I'm now prancing around in my new skirt that only cost me the price of a zipper! Hi Nasim, I'm sorry I should have been clearer there! I guess you figured it out but yes you do need to pull once on one end and then once on the other end too.
It gets tricky because the fabric gets stuck or too full in one spot and you have to get it unstuck. I'm glad it worked out though!
Enjoy your new skirt and thanks for stopping by! How easy would it be to add pockets to this? I love the skirt, but I also love skirts with pockets. The only way I've added a pocket is in the seem of the skirt. The trouble there is that with this skirt there is only one available seam since the other one has a zipper. Unless your zipper was very short and you put the pocket below the zipper.
The only thing about doing it this way is that you will have to put the skirt on over your head because the zipper wouldn't have a wide enough opening. I hope this helps! I put pockets on my High Waisted Mini Skirt if you're looking for how to do it. Thanks for stopping by! So when you say "it's too big" do you mean loose or too full?
How did you attach the extra fabric? Is it sewn together with the outer fabric or is it separate from it? The easier way to decrease the size including the waistband would be to cut open the other seam, not the zipper side.
When you go tot put it back together you'll just have a seam line in the waistband. That way the zipper side still looks finished and it will save you a lot of work. Thanks for the feedback! Hi, I want to make this skirt but the waist size is 50". How would I adjust the material measurements?
So sorry it's taken this long to hear back from me I was out of the country for 2 weeks! To keep the fullness of the gather you will need to add an addition piece to the body so you'll end up with three seams instead of two. The zipper will end up in the back in the center and the other seams on the sides.
I'd keep the main body pieces the same size as I did just add another one. Then when you attach the sash make sure the zipper ends up in the back. I made this skirt a few months ago, and decided to just now post it on my blog. I hope it is alright that I used your directions I gave you complete credit because you explained the process far better than I ever could!
If you want, check it out! That turned out VERY cute! Thanks for the credit AND the button! You're blog is very cute: I just love this skirt and the others youve posted on your blog! I am VERY new to sewing but want to be good at it! I am a little confused on the measurements ive tried to figure it out by reading the other comments with not much luck My waist is 31 inches and im quite short so the height from my wasit to my desired skirt length is 16 inches. Could you help me figure out the measurements please?
Hi Lesleigh, No problem! What a fantastic tutorial Amy! Love the fabric you chose, and woman would want to wear that! I hope you will consider adding this into SewSet! All you would need to do is add a photo and a few brief words, and everything else would link directly back to you!
I would love for users to be able to find this when looking, and find you! Thank you so much for sharing, I love it! Hey hun, Just wanted to let you know that I featured this on my blog this morning.
I would love it if you could check it out and grab my button: Ok so when cutting the fabric the body needs to be at least double the waist measurement. Like for mine I did 28" waist and 66" body. Did you do something similar? At the top of the tutorial I have broken out the three sections that make up the skirt; the belt, the body, and the sash. The body is going to be 22" high by your waist measurement times 2 plus a few extra inches for fullness. But you will cut the body in two pieces.
Mine was 22"h x 33"w x2 for a total width of 66". I'm a new follower and new to blogging and I love your tutorials!
I'm definately going to attempt to make since I am new to sewing. Thanks for the great craft idea! First of all thanks so much for the awesome tutorial!
I am also a size 2 so I am so excited to have perfect measurements!! I just have two questions - one is I am just wondering how tall you are? I am only 5'2 so I am hoping the skirt will not be too long. Second, sorry if this is pretty obvious but I would love to make a skirt exactly like yours, but when I go on fabric.
Is it just your basic cotton? I am planning on going to the fabric store and getting the ladies there to help me as I am new to sewing. Ok so I'm 5'5" tall so you might take an inch or so off the length. This fabric I used I got from a random shop in Arizona, I don't think its out in other shops cause I think the fabric comes from Mexico: Let me know what you think! Hi Amy, would you do that?!?!
That is so kind! I would love to buy some from you. How much extra do you have? Also I live in Canada, would you be able to ship here? Let me look into the shipping price, it maybe a bit more. Can you send me your address? You can email it to amy thisbigoaktree. Your directions were very clear and easy to follow. I used the comments from other posts to adjust the measurements for my skirt.
I usually wear around a size 14, but the skirt ended up much bigger than I expected but the sash helps make it tighter.
Thanks for the awesome directions! I can't wait to try another project! Hi Melissa, Thanks for trying out my tutorial! Sorry the measurements didn't turn out exactly as planned: If you want to send me a photo of it you can send it to amy thisbigoaktree.
I just want to tell you how I enjoyed making this skirt. It was super easy and turned out super cute!! I blogged about it I'm new to the blogging world and wore it to a wedding on Saturday. Go so many compliments! Thank you for sharing!! Can't wait to make another one!! I am really benefiting from the simplicity of this project. Hi Lydia, The fabric is cotton with no stretch.
I'm glad you like my tutorial: I made this skirt awhile back and of course flunked on the zipper part, but now my knowledge is better and I'm ready to try again. I was wondering if you had any advice on making this floor length? I know that sometimes when you do this to skirts they come out with a funky shape I am working on my wedding dress!!
I'm so glad you're back and ready to try it again! I had been sewing for 5 years before I ever even thought to put in a zipper, I commend you on your efforts! I think this could look really awesome in a floor length version. My recommendation would be to make it even fuller. If you keep it the same fullness as it currently is it will be too tight at the feet and not have any real gather there at the bottom.
Other than that I think it will be great. Please let me know how it goes! And I hope to show you my success soon! Thanks for this tutorial! I just bought fabric to make it today. Do you think it's possible to turn the belt into the sash by attaching a small piece of fabric for the zipper and tying it there?
