YogaSkirt-SewAlong-Day1.png

Jocole's Yoga A-Line Skirt is one of my favorites.  It's super comfy but looks really classy.  So you'll look amazing, but feel like you're wearing pajamas. What could be better than that?

I loved it SO much I decided to offer it for both Ladies (xs through xxxl) and Girls (18m through 14 + doll) .. did you grab yours?  You can use the code "PatternRevolution" for 25% off your *entire* cart.  [Code Expires: February 11th 11:59pm PST]

Today is DAY ONE.  

We need to do a little preparation work before we can get sewing ... here are your tasks for the day:

  1. Purchase and download the pattern(s)
  2. Print pattern pages
  3. Cut off margins and tape pages together ... aligning the grid lines and the triangles to make diamonds.
  4. Cut out desired size (or carefully trace desired size onto freezer paper)
  5. Use the pattern to cut our the pieces in your desired fabric -- make sure to check the stretch gauge to make sure your fabric is stretchy enough (especially for the waistband)
  • One Front and One Back (or TWO opposites for the Front and TWO opposites for the Back if you are doing the chevron option)
  • One Waistband (use the cutting chart and a rotary cutter ... or a ruler and a pencil to mark and then cut with scissors)
Regular Version; Cut ONE Front piece, ONE Back piece and ONE Waistband
