Skirts are an easy garment to start with if you’re learning to sew.
If you’re just starting out, you might be more confident making bags, first.
All of the skirt tutorials below give step by step instructions. They don’t require commercial patterns and are either pattern-less or they show you how to draw up your own easy pattern.
That way, you skirt will fit you perfectly.
These skirts include a variety of styles, sewing techniques, difficulty levels and funky inspiration, so there’s something here for everyone.
Mix and match styles and techniques to make your own perfect style.
As usual, these tutorials are usually for personal use only, not commercial use, consult each individual website for details.
