Suggested Fabrics

Lightweight wovens: linen, cotton, chambray, double gauze, muslin, lawn, viscose rayon. 

Midweight wovens suit the shorter lengths better: pinwale cord, velveteen, drill, quilting cotton.  For a special occasion skirt try satin, chiffon, or silk. 

Lightweight knits: modal, merino, jersey.  Thicker weights such as French terry are not suitable.  

Other Supplies & Notions

  • Spool of coordinating thread
  • Elastic 1/2" (1.25cm) wide
  • Large safety pin for threading elastic through
  • Optional - lightweight interfacing for front waistband (knitted or woven are best but non-woven would work)
