We interviewed Masumi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It features a very girly design, so I wanted to create something that reminds you of a dress.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
There is no elastic at the waist in the front. This way it does not look voluminous. The wide lace trim accentuates the girly feel.

KF: What are some tips for making this skirt?
As it only requires straight stitching, it is easy to create a different look by adjusting the skirt length.

KF: How should we incorporate this skirt into one’s styling?
Why not making a matching head dress for more girly and lovely style.

KF: Thank you very much, Masumi! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!


Prepare the materials.

Put together the main skirt and waist fabrics. Create tucks on the main skirt panel to match the width of the waist fabric (front). Sew them together with the front sides facing each other.

Put through the elastic tape for the waist. Sew for 1cm from the top, leave 2.5cm unsewn, then sew the rest all the way to the end.

Put the elastic tape through the unsewn opening. Sew the beginning and end of the elastic tape at each opening. Pull the elastic by 5cm and sew to secure. Cut off the excess.

Finish the hem. With the front sides facing each other, attach the lace to the skirt by sewing at 1cm from the edge. Apply zigzag stitches on the edge. Also sew at 3cm from the edge. From the front side, apply edge stitches at the hem.
