    I used a yard of this plaid fabric and had plenty left over. I also used a bit of an "elastic for the back waist. Start with a (crude) sketch of the dimensions of the skirt. I wanted pleats starting below a 4 "yoke. There are several ways to make the yoke. You can make a rectangle that fits around the hip, sew the sides up and insert elastic in the waistband, like a typical rectangular gathered skirt. You could also cut a fitted yoke for the front and back and insert a zipper at the

    Today's project is a basic A-Line skirt. It's fitted at the waist through the hip but roomy in the thigh. This is important because we're making it in a knit, and knits can cling. Eep!

    Learning how to sew a zipper is what separates a beginner sewer from an intermediate (and intermediate sounds way better, right?). We've got a fun and really easy project to help you learn the zipper sewing process with this oil cloth pencil case. You can substitute with cotton if you'd like as well but oil cloth will hold its shape much better. Supplies: Oil cloth zipper (mine was 8'') pins scissors sewing machine and matching thread Measure your zipper across and cut two matching pieces of oil cloth the same length x 4'' height. My zipper was 8''
