So let's dig right into it.

You'll need:

  • Your Delia Skirt PDF Pattern
  • Preferred fabric
  • Color matching thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Elastic 3.5 cm wide (66 cm for size 36)

Seam Allowances

  • 1 cm

Fabric Suggestion:

 Elastic mid weight fabrics are the way to go when it comes to creating this skirt. The elasticity of these fabrics allows for a snug fit and an incredible range of movement. So our suggested fabrics would be elastic velvet, thick lycra, knit fabric etc

How much fabric do you need for your diy skirt?

To make sure you're getting the right amount of fabric for your size, please refer to the chart below for fabric measurements based on a fabric width of 140-150cm. . If you're using a different fabric width than the one suggested (like stripes, plaids etc), adjust the placement of your pieces accordingly.

Check shrinkage!

Cutting your fabric isn't the end of the sewing process—it's just the beginning. But if you're not careful, it could be the end of your project.

We know that you want to get to the fun part—sewing! But before you cut, make sure to check for shrinkage. That way, when it comes time to wash your new garment, it won't shrink at all and will fit as you intended.

This can be done by iron steaming the raw material at its maximum heat recommendation.
