1. Measure around your hips. This measurement is your skirt piece width. Decide how long you'd like your skirt to be (we did ours 85cm long), this is your skirt length measurement. Cut a rectangle with your skirt width measurement running across the width of the fabric (the way the fabric stretches) and the length of your skirt length.

*If your hip measurement is bigger than 140cm*. The width of the sequin fabric is 140cm so for hip measurements up to this you will only need to cut one piece. If your hip measurement is bigger than this you will need to half your measurement and cut two pieces. Eg. For a 150cm hip measurement and a skirt length of 85cm you would cut two rectangles measuring 75cm x 85cm.

2. With right sides together sew your skirt piece(s) into a tube using a 1cm seam allowance. Use a large needle size and go slowly if needed, most machines can stitch through sequins without a problem.

3. Cut your elastic to your waist measurement (e.g 100cm if your waist measured 100cm). Align the short raw edges with right sides together and stitch with a 1cm seam allowance to create a loop. Go up and down your stitch line a few times to strengthen it.

4. Place the elastic around the top of the skirt, with the wrong side of the elastic overlapping the right side of the skirt by 1cm. Align the seam allowance of the skirt and the seam allowance of the elastic and pin in place. Then mark the half way and quarter way points on your skirt and elastic and pin these together. Add in a few more pins at halfway points between them.

5. Select a zig-zag stitch on your machine, we used a 5mm width and 6mm length. We used the navy thread for this but if you'd prefer the stitching to be more invisible you can use a grey/silver thread. With the right side of the skirt and elastic facing up stitch around the top of the skirt, close to the bottom edge of the elastic. You will need to heavily stretch the elastic as you go so may need to pull at the front and the back to get it through the machine! Backstitch at the start and end of your stitch line.


6. Neaten your hem line if needed but this fabric doesn't need hemming. You may need to trim away some loose sequins but they won't all unravel. Position the seam at the centre back if you just have one seam or at the sides if you have two.
