Sewalong Day 1: Planning and Preparing Pattern Pieces

Step 1: Purchase your pattern. Save 20% with coupon code SEWALONG (code valid June 24, 2017 – July 2, 2017).

Step. 2: Choose your options; this pattern offers many ways to personalize your skirt/skort/shorts:

  • Three Skirt Lengths
  • Three Rises
  • Optional Shorts with four inseam lengths
  • Two Pocket Options
  • Optional Flounce at Skirt Hem.

Step 3: MEASURE your body then choose the best size(s) for a custom fit for YOUR body.

Step 4: Print and assemble your pattern. Now is a good time to make initial adjustments to your pattern pieces for the best fit, i.e.: grading between sizes if needed. And remember to always check your 1″ square BEFORE taping and cutting.

Step 5: Cut your pattern reflecting any fit adjustments you made in Step 3.


Congratulations! You finished Day 1 of the Shenanigans Skort Sewalong!

Please be sure to visit the blog for Day 2…it’s all about FABRIC!

Psssst. Did you pre-wash your fabric yet? If not, hurry, get it in the wash, so you are ready for tomorrow!
