How to Make a Handkerchief Skirt

The measurement can vary. But I am gonna follow my waist measurement, which is 26 inches and two inches extra for the seam allowance. I found a website that helps me to calculate my radius. All you got to do is play is to ensure what type of skirt you want to make and fill out the information they ask for. Okay, before starting with the process, I will recommend using fabrics that are solid and self-finished.

Step 1

I am using the recommended fabric in the above section for this DIY. I am gonna fold it up, making sure that all the ends are nice and smooth, all the edges are smooth, and there are no wrinkles. Once you complete that, fold the fabric again.

Step 2

Now, I am going to cut my waist, and that’s around 28 inches, just as mentioned above. So, I am taking the zero mark up and placing it on the 28 inches. That way, my tape is folded once and then folding it again because my fabric was folded twice.

Step 3

Now, I am placing the tape at the one edge of the fabric and marked the measurement there. Then cut it out. After that, I have measured the part below the 3-inch part and found it to be 19 inches. So, I followed that measurement and marked the wider place according to that. This is because I want to keep it square. So, I followed this measurement, leaving 3 inches edge that I have cut before. Once I have completed it, I unfolded the fabric, and it was ready.
