Sew You Wanna Stitch a Skirt? Here Are Some Tips!
1. Before you tackle sewing your own skirt, make sure to pick the style and pattern for you. Take note of your body type and pick a pattern that makes you feel flattered. If you don't know where to start, a classic A-line skirt looks great on just about everyone — trust us.
2. Be smart about your fabric choice. How you plan to wear your garment (casual, semi-casual or formal) should determine which fabric you turn to. If you're sticking to a more casual look, choose a fabric like cotton, linen or polyester.
