Hi All,

I enjoyed sewing my first 1 hour skirt so much that I made another! I  added a printed net fabric for this one, which I decided to make my first french seams on. They turned out great, I don’t know why I was nervous about.

Here’s a gallery of the finished skirt, it turned out a lot better than I expected it to.

I am aware that this is way too early for Halloween I dress like this a lot.

I used the same tutorial I followed for my last skirt, the only difference was repeating it for the net (but with french seams) and being careful to fold both materials together at the waist.

I left the netting raw at the hem as is doesn’t fray and I thought it would look a little bulky for such a delicate fabric.

At this point I think I’ll have way too many 1 hour skirts…

My “1 Hour Skirt”

Posted in Sewing, Skirts with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2014 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

It’s been a while since I last posted on here, I’ve been too tired to make/finish anything so I have kept to my routine of quick and easy makes.

I have looked back at my online to-do list via Kollabora.com as I wanted to make yet another skirt but more feminine this time. I remember the 1 hour skirt and I thought I’d give it a go as it looked simple enough.

Here are photos of mine before I hemmed it.

This skirt actually would have taken me an hour if I did it all in one day, I started it yesterday and left the hemming ’til today as I started it late. I also had to shorten the elastic in the waist as it looked huge when it on.

If I have any scraps large enough I’ll make some more. I do have some heavy satin fabric but I was waiting for the right dress to use it plus I’m not sure it’ll be suited to this type of skirt.

I’ll do my  research and decide later.
