Wearing the Skirt
Back of Skirt
Simplicity 2226 is a "Learn to Sew" pattern. The pattern gives options for two lengths, pocket trim, belt loops, tie belt, and center back zipper. The skirt is designed to sit below the natural waistline.
Because this pattern is geared for beginners sewers, the instructions are detailed and include step-by-step directions and illustrations. The details and stylish design make it a great skirt pattern for those with more sewing experience as well.
Fabric: A Border Fabric! Lightweight Cotton with Stretch, bought on the remnant table at Denver Fabrics.
I used an invisible zipper on the side seam instead of at center back. I cut the skirt back in one piece, eliminating the seam so as not to disrupt the border print.
I stabilized the pocked edges and the top seam of the waistband with a strip of interfacing to prevent stretching. I also interfaced the zipper seam allowance.
I added a lining to the skirt. (Does anybody wear slips anymore?)
With green thread, I topstitched the hem, the pocket edges, the waistband, and the belt loops with the triple-stitch setting on my machine.
I made it last year, and I made it again this week. This is a skirt pattern that I can see myself making again and again. I like it that much.
