Girls School Skirt Sewing Project - Simplicity 1332


This essential school skirt is made form stunningly high quality suit fabric to make your young lady feel super smart and special for her first day at school.  

Simplicity 1332 features a simple skirt with a gathered elasticated waist and twin stitched hem.  


Just take a look at the close up of this stunning fabric, it would normally be reserved for very high quality suits.  

The twin stitched hem adds a really professional finish.



The elasticated gathered waistband makes getting this skirt on and off a breeze, great for encouraging her independence.  It will also stretch as she grows so it will fit for ages.

Start by cutting out the pattern pieces on the fold of the fabric.


Then pin, sew and finish the side seams.


Press up the hem and press down the waistband.


I use a slightly different technique for the elastic insertion than shown in the pattern instructions.  I cut my elastic and sew the two ends together to make a loop.


Then I insert the elastic loop under the waistband and stitch the waistband in place with a twin needle securing the elastic inside the casing.  I find that this gives a much neater finish and is also much quicker to sew than inserting the elastic with a bodkin after sewing the waistband.
