Sewing Project # 1: Time to cut and sew your six-gore skirt!


Hello!  It’s time! Time for my enthusiastic newbie sewists to cut and sew their six-gore skirts.  You have practiced and completed your sewing samples, so you know how to finish your seams, sew different types of hems, attach a waistband and put in a centered zipper.  You’ve read the tutorial on fabric grainlines and naps, so you how to lay your pieces on the fabric. 

You have all techniques needed to sew the skirt.  Keep your reference notebook close by.  Looking at your samples while making your skirt will help a great deal.

Any questions or feedback can be posted in the comments section.  If you want, you can post a comment to let me know you have finished your skirt. 

Click here for the cutting and sewing instructions.  Remember, have fun!

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.

  1. How crazy! I have been looking, and looking, and looking for a full, flowy, skirt pattern but couldn’t find one I liked. I will attempt this (and report back!)

  2. Heidi, I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Thank you for posting this!
