so I am starting with the next tutorial for a maxi skirt, for all of you who have been reading my blog in the last months there might be same parts, you already seen and read before, but since I made so many pictures I decided to make another tutorial anyhow. 😉
I used the pattern of the red maxi skirt, how I made that and the pattern it is based on can be found here.
Since I made the skirt of corduroy I had to cut all pattern pieces in the same direction, and the fabric wasn’t wide enough, so
I cut it 3 times right under each other in fold
and then I put the rests above each other (minding it is still all the same direction) and cut it a 4th time, I needed about 3m in total
now I picked another rest with a fold and folded it over so its 4 layers
then I placed the top of the skirt part on it, the fold will be the bottom of the pockets, so I tested with my hand how big I wanted the pockets to be
now I took 2 skirt parts and placed the button parts unfolded right side on right on top
now I put the skirt parts right sides facing each other on top of each other, the pockets parts sandwiched in between, wrong sides facing each other
now I tested how big the opening for the pockets need to be
drew a line on
pinned all 4 layers and cut
then I sewed each pocket part to the skirt part
cut in at the seam allowance at the curve
folded it over and ironed
then folded the pocket back up
I hope this was helpful! If there are any question please let me know!
Next monday I will show you the next steps!
keep sewing and smiling
I don’t sew but my mom was a seamstress 🙂 and your tutorial is very “people” friendly and easy to follow…
thank you! 🙂

Hi, I’d love to see the pattern but the link didn’t work for me. Is it a free one? Can you provide the url? Thanks! Great skirt!
It is a free pattern since I give you the instructions to construct your own pattern. I am sorry about the link, I fixed it. Or you can find the posts with the pattern instructions here: https://tailorfairy.com/category/sewing/sewing-projects/maxi-skirts/
