Skirts are a great project to make up, especially for newcomers to dressmaking. We've shared lots of great skirt patterns on our previous posts - Simple Summer Skirt Tutorials and 5 Free Skirt Patterns to Sew
This time we are back with even more that we have found across the blogosphere from talented dressmakers writing about sewing and sharing sewing tutorials. It's amazing how much support you can find when you start dressmaking.
In Issue 30 of love sewing we share the stylish Vera Wrap Skirt pattern and step by step instructions, you can find a copy in your local newsagents or supermaket or if they've sold out order a copy online at www.moremags.com. It's a very practical skirt, great for casual summer wear or just as wearable with tights in winter.
We thought we'd look around for more lovely and 100% free patterns and tutorials for sewing skirts for you!
