This is the first item of clothing I've made. Before now I've only made a bag and a phone case and things.
I used a pattern Simplicity 3836 and my new sewing machine.
First of all I pinned the pattern to the material and cut it out. I sewed up the sides of the skirt leaving a gap for the zip on one side. Then I added the zip by tacking it into place and then sewing round it and removing the tacking. Then I sewed on the waistband. Then I hemmed the skirt at the bottom and added a hook and eye fastening above the zip.
