I have several friends who are learning to sew right now – and I LOVE it! Sewing is such a fun skill to have, it opens so many possibilities creatively.CoupleJones Skirt Tutorial2 My mom taught my sister and I and a bunch of my friends to sew when I was in the 5th grade. She ran a little sewing school in our basement as a way to make a little extra money as a stay at home mom. My sister and I still talk about the culottes we strutted proudly in the fashion shows we had at the end of each sewing session.CoupleJones Skirt Tutorial3 I made a nautical themed vest and culotte matched set once…yeah…and THEN I wore it to Jr High. I was SO cool. If only the other 6th graders would have realized it.

Through the years I’ve been so thankful for the skills I learned back then and I’d love the chance to be able to help someone else learn.

I thought I’d do a quick tutorial on a SIMPLE girl’s skirt. This is a basic skirt, no frills or extras but it’s a great place to start.CoupleJones Skirt Tutorial3 Once you get this skirt down, you can start mixing it up – this is the same style of skirt that I made when I made my New Year’s Sparkle Skirt. Same skirt, more extras! :)

OK, First, you will need a half a yard of a basic cotton fabric. Don’t go fancy with your first few projects. Stay away from knit. Once you get these skills down and are more confident then you can go for it with whatever fabric you feel up to trying – but for now – let’s stick to the basics.

Because this is a child’s pattern, you should have enough length with a half a yard to go around the child’s waist completely with enough to have some gather. The smaller the child, the more full the skirt will be.

You will need a yard of elastic – I would recommend at least a half inch wide elastic so that your waistband will be less likely to roll. Also, scissors, straight pins, and thread. I will be using dark thread so you can easily see my seams but you should use thread that matches your fabric.

Start by trimming the selvage edge off the sides of your fabric. This is the edge that has been treated so it won’t fray and usually it will have the brand info on it and sometimes it has little holes in it and is a different texture than the rest of the fabric. So we want to get rid of those suckers.

Next, fold your fabric in half as shown below, with the inside out.

A few things to make sure you know before sewing the first seam. You should use a straight stitch for your first few projects, until you get the hang of it or are directed otherwise by your pattern. AND every time you start or end a seam, you should reverse a stitch or two and then continue on your way. This makes it so the seam won’t unravel. Again, there are exceptions to this rule later on in sewing but for beginners, it’s a good practice.

This might make it easier to find them:

Gore Gore Girls - Go-go boots & mini skirts. Sound like a cross between punk and 60's girl groups. Hammer is beautiful & deadly with a guitar!
Unknown Hinson - Psychobilly madness. Looks like Eddie Munster on a heroin bender, sounds like Reverend Horton Heat's scary cousin.
Squidbillies - More awesome psychobilly. much like Unknown Hinson
Jordan Shapiro - Stoner rock guitar & steel guitar virtuoso. Simply beautiful to hear, even better live

Why don't girls hit on me?

Ok I'm in a commited relationship but it would feel nice every once in a while to get hit on by a girl. Guys are ALWAYS looking at me or hitting on me but never girls. Not even at gay bars or similar events. I'm ultra-femme so could that be it? Wouldn't some lesbian have the "balls" (so to speak...) to give it a try?
It would make me feel nice, even if I'd have to turn them down!
Trust me, I'm pretty cute. Thin, long brunette hair, big green eyes, nice curves even though I'm tiny and I love wearing heels with skirts, etc.
What's up with girls not showing interest?

No,never to grade/high school

Not knowingly,but also its good to remember that most
pre-teens and teens don't NEED eyeliner or mascara
cuz they have thicker lashes anyway.
no, I was sorta caught by parents or friends of parents a few times,when i lived at my parents house,but no i tried to be very discreet,I had enough
gender-bleeding problems as it was just breathing
.
likewise I was "accused" of wearing "girl clothes
but what difference does it make? those were tops
I was wearing pants, girls clothes are skirts and \
dresses. never wore those in my home town

Come to Vegas

You should come out to Vegas. Girls go clubbing in all kinds of short skirts with no panties and tops that "accidentally" expose their nipples all the time. It is one of the things I love about this town. I have seen countless amazing pussies and tits "accidentally" exposed in casinos.
You could go to Jet or Tao and get up on the stripper pole and be dancing in your own world knowing that the guys are peeping you. Then you could look down make eye contact with which ever one you like best. There are plenty of guys willing to play that game with you out here without you even having to tell them
