How to make the skirts that I have in my shop on etsy.http://www.etsy.com/shop/AthenasThreads
I serged the strips together, always starting 5/8 inch seam allowance and tapering to 3/8 inch within 3 inches of the top edge. In other words, I just took a "smidge" off each strip at the waist, this helped with fitting later.
After I had sewn enough strips to go around me and with an overlap in the front, I was ready to fit the skirt. I overlapped the front from hip bone to hip bone. Putting the skirt on my dressform, wrong side out, I pinned the strips to taper at the waist, then stitched the strips as pinned.
I hemmed the skirt with hem tape and hand stitched the hem.
Voila! A fitted pencil skirt, very professional and fun.
