A Line Pocket Skirt {Tutorial}

In case you missed it, the A Line Pocket Skirt premiered as a guest post for Whatever Dee Dee Wants Spring Fling Event


I don’t know about you, but we were sooooo ready for Spring to arrive this year. There is just something about stepping out of the Winter doldrums that makes you itchy for Spring to come around. So when we saw some flowers starting to make their appearance, we decided to throw a little party for them…





And of course, what is a party without some brand new skirts to go with it…


Making the A Line Pocket Skirt is super simple, and once you get the hang of it, you can whip them out in less than half an hour, adding any embellishments you want!


To make, first determine the length you want your pocket skirt to be, then add 3″ to the length for seam allowance.

The width of each panel should be between 15 – 17″ (this is not going to be a full gathered skirt, but rather fitting instead).

Cut 2 panels of fabric using these dimensions. Once you have your front and back panels cut simply…


A simple, brand new skirt for Spring that wont keep you couped up inside and in front of the sewing machine!  Now get outside and enjoy some of that gorgeous weather…

The Spring Fling event sure helped me shake off the Winter Blues!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing.

      Ahhh…technical difficulty. When I first did this tute a couple of months ago for the Spring Fling event, I was using Flickr they was I used to use it. Since then they have changed their settings, and I have had to make all of my photos public in order for them to be pinned. But when these were first uploaded, they were private – which is why they cannot be pinned now. Sorry about that!
