In today’s video we’re going to cover how to cut the skirt panels for the Simple Pull-On Skirt using the measurements we got in our previous video Transferring the Body Measurements to the Fabric.
Make sure you watch that video and our video on How to Measure a Body for Clothing here before you start cutting: https://www.quiltaddictsanonymous.com/introtogarmentsewing/
The skirt Stephanie Brennan is making on camera is for my daughter, so we only need one panel for her skirt. But most adults will need two to three panels depending on your hip width, so make sure you follow the instructions in our FREE pattern to figure out what you need.

Next Stephanie Brennan will walk you through how to make sure you are cutting with the grain so your skirt hangs straight, and how to compensate when the printed pattern isn’t in line with the grain.
You really want to take your time with this step to make sure your skirt always hangs straight and your pattern, if it matches up on the sides, looks professional when the side seams are sewn together.
In the next video we’ll actually start sewing, so get excited!
Make sure you grab one or both of the skirt patterns we will be making in the Intro to Garment Sewing course.
