How To: Sew a Victorian skirt

Sew a Victorian skirt

This video demonstrates how to sew a Victorian skirt. First take a cotton cloth and cut a rectangle piece twice the size of your waist. The length would be depending on your choice of height you require. Hem the top and the bottom of the cloth. Then use elastic thread to create 12 rows of shirring. Each row can be 1/4th inch apart. This is for sure a tedious task but it will look beautiful. Then take a chiffon cloth and cut the same size as your skirt. Hem one side of it and on the other side sew a lace of the same size. Pin the lace and chiffon on the skirt and while you are sewing it remember to stretch the skirt. Once you are done fold the skirt into half and sew the side. Your Victorian skirt is done.
