Trimming Off The Old Waistband
Now for removing that old waistband. The Threads article said something about cutting below the dart points, but my skirt doesnt have darts, it has princess seams. It also has a lining, so there was a potential for extreme aggravation, trying to keep that slippery rayon under control. The goal of trimming is cutting down the skirt until you can slip it over your hips easily. I started out by unzipping all the way, then trimming right above the zipper pull. By leaving the bottom of the zipper attached, I left the lining still attached to the skirt top
I used the pattern in the cloth and my eyeballs to cut straight. What can I say? Im not a huge fan of precision and this was really a technique-test. Can I get an amen for hacking off the top of skirts without measuring??
Once I got the waistband cut off, I pinned the lining to the skirt at each seam and then I trimmed right below the zipper to get rid of of the zipper stop. I also did a seat-of-my-pants tilted waist adjustment by dipping this final cut down about and inch and a half at the center front, easing back up at each side seam.
I tried it on to make sure I could slide it over my hips and I still liked the length. Since this fix removes the zipper completely, the skirt needs to slide over the hips easily otherwise you couldnt pull it on once you attach the new waistband!

Diy Twist Front Dress From T
I transformed an oversized cotton t-shirt into a front twist dress. The front twist dress features cut out detail that gives the style a flattering look.
Wear this shirt dress DIY on a casual day, and also a date night looks during the summer season. If you dont have a cotton t-shirt, a stretchy jersey t-shirt also works well.;
Furthermore, dont be intimidated to use two t-shirts to combine into one dress. Itll be much easier to cut and sew if you have excess material to work with.

Where To Buy Knit Fabrics:
Knit fabric comes in so many different weights, content and stretch. ;It is important to use the right fabric for this project. ;Ive ;tried a few different;fabrics and definitely have my favorites.
- You need to look for a knit fabric with at least 50% stretch and around 4% or more lycra/spandex for recovery.
- I love the cotton lycra from Funkalicious fabrics most of her;3/8 Cotton Lycra Stripe Knit Fabric is pretty great.
- Kaufman Laguna knit is also good, but a bit thinner that the cotton lycra from Funkalicious
- Riley Blake Cotton Jersey;has great stretch and recovery, is a nice weight and has a ton of cute designs
- The BOLT line is slightly thinner, but has great stretch and recovery for leggings.

The dress has a finished look that appears advanced, but this is truly how to make a simple dress without a pattern. Overall, I was truly impressed by the DIY t-shirt dress design.

Yoga Waistband Legging Tutorial
How to sew Yoga Waistband leggings with this free;Yoga Waistband Legging Tutorial
We are always in need of leggings over here and our latest obsession is these Yoga Waistband Leggings.; I love that this style of legging can be whipped up using only a serger in about 20 minutes because you dont have to deal with the extra hassle of adding in an elastic waistband.; Of course, these can be made without a serger too, you would just want to use your specialty stretch stitches and reinforce the seams that will get a lot of pressure.
Im a little slow in getting this legging pattern update on the blog, obviously, these photos were taken well before Christmas and I really dragged my feet getting this post up.; The main issues was Id intended to include a start to finish video on how to make the leggings on a serger only, to accompany the serger giveaway post.; But OMG, I had so much trouble with that video!!!
Since I was filming, I did not stop to take photographs and in order to just get the tutorial up, I had to make another set of leggings so I could photograph the steps.
And then, of course, Ive also edited the pattern to fix a couple of things that always bothered me and I re-graded the legging pattern to add a size 14.; ; So when I say some of these patterns have a ridiculous amount of time behind them, I am not kidding!!!
I truly dont know if Ill go back and re-edit that video and get it posted.; Ill try to muster up the motivation, but Im just over it!
How To Sew Leggings With A Yoga Waistband // A Virginia Leggings Tutorial
Hey everyone, Holly here! As you may know, the Virginia leggings are Megans pattern of the month for February . So I have a fun pattern variation tutorial for you today. How do you feel about some Virginia yoga style leggings? These are so comfy, and there is no need for elastic!
First we will go over creating the waistband pattern piece. The construction is pretty much the same as attaching the regular waistband , but Ill walk you through those steps too.
Lets get started!
To make yoga leggings, you will need to cut out the version 2 low rise legs. But you will be using your version 1 elastic measurement to make to yoga waistband pattern.
Note: since every body is different, you should first measure and test out that measurement to make sure it is comfortable. Remember, while you wont actually attach elastic to this version, you are using a very stretchy fabric, so it should be a nice tight fit with that measurement. But dont be afraid to make changes for your personal preferences and comfort.
Grab a piece of extra long scrap paper to make your yoga waistband pattern piece.
Draw a straight line the length of your V1 elastic measurement.
The height of your yoga waistband is up to you. For reference, we found that about 11 3/4 worked well. Just remember that the fabric piece will be folded in half, so whatever height you want, remember to double it and add seam allowance.
Square out these two lines to finish your rectangle pattern piece.
