Hello Cluck Cluck Sew readers! my name is Vanessa and i’m the gal behind the blog V and Co.
i’m super excited i’m so happy that Allison asked me to share with you my table cloth skirt tutorial. shall we get started?
a zipper and
zipper foot for your sewing machine
your favorite skirt (preferably an A-line skirt)
a table cloth (the one featured is a martha stewart table cloth found at K-Mart) so many of you liked my other skirt i just made out of a table cloth that i was wanting to share how for all of you to make one for yourselves.
here you go:
make sure you wash your table cloth before you start this project. we don’t want it shrinking on you after you’ve made it to fit you perfectly.
pin your zipper all along (the 6 inches that is left opened) make sure the zipper is facing away from you. and at the bottom of your opening (like 1/4″ lower than your opening) place a pin sideways so you can see where you will need to cross over your zipper
also notice how i place my pins (the ones pointing up so that i can easily pull them out as i go sewing down my zipper, and the other side pointing down because i continue to sew once i cross over, in the other direction)
next you want to sew up the other side still close to the zipper. when you get to the top make sure you back stitch. and cut off the extra zipper part on the bottom.
to sew your front and back together, place right sides together pin the sides to match up. sew your sides up using a 1/2 inch seam allowance.once you’ve sewn the skirt sides, press your seams open on either side.
