Easy Fit and Sew Pull-on Skirt with Jennifer Stern-Hasemann
Learn the fundamentals of working with knit fabric to create this stylish 4-gore pull-on knit skirt. This is a perfect beginner project for anyone who is interested in learning how to sew garments. You’ll learn how to get professional results sewing knits with a sewing machine. We’ll start by picking your size based on your full hip measurement. Then I’ll show you how to adjust the fullness at the waist and hem to create a flatting shape for your figure. The center front and back seams create a slenderizing effect. After sewing the seams, see how easy it is to add elastic to the waistline without sewing a casing. See a few different ways to finish the hem.
