List of supplies I used for this video is a king size flat bed sheet (she got a microfiber set from Wal-Mart for $23.00. The first skirt I made was short and that was a regular full size new sheet set I bought from a flea market. The second skirt is the same set she used in the video [cheetah, oooohhhhhhh]), scissors, a 22 inch zipper (or whatever you have on hand, for the short one I only had one on hand and it was a different color and super long, lol), pellon (or stitchwitchery, that's what she had on hand at the time of the video), matching thread, pins, ruler, iron and board, pressing cloth, spray bottle with water.
Problems I had with the making this skirt: NONE! It really was easy, I think a great beginner's project if you want to do a waistband other than elastic. I love that I could make my band as large as a wanted to so I didn't get little (not-so) love handles (I'm working on 'em!) on the side from the elastic, lol. Awesome sauce!!
|These are the supplies that I used!|
This sheet was HUGE, I had to take it off my cutting table and bring it into the kitchen. If I had put it on the floor my doggie would have thought I was make him a wonderful new bed.
|These are my dimensions for the skirt.|
|Yes I can see it now, woo-hoo!!|
|Folding and ironing the hem.|
|Waistband, I love the flat waistband!!|
|This is what you have to work around and over when you cute the zipper too short, ugh!|
