It is necessary

sewing needles, scissors, fabric, threads


Step 1

Take the fabric you like, but not very dense, as the folds at the waist will be too voluminous, and the shape will be distorted. Take your measurement - waist circumference.

Step 2

First of all, make a pattern. Draw a square with sides of 150 centimeters on tracing paper and cut out. Then attach the square to the fabric and circle two squares, cut out. Fold the square diagonally. A little trick - to make the skirt flared, make a quarter circle at the base of the cut. From a right angle, mark the length of the skirt and draw a line for the bottom and waist in a circle.

Step 3

Cut out the resulting two pieces of the skirt. Join them at the sides and sew on a sewing machine. On one side, do not stitch about 15 centimeters for the zipper. Stitch in the zipper. Then process the edges on an overlock.

Step 4

Create even folds on the top of the skirt, comparing the top to the measurement of the waist. Secure them with sewing needles. Then sew the pleats all the way down. Hem the bottom of the skirt.

Step 5

Now proceed to the belt. Mark its width, no more than 10 centimeters, and the length should be equal to the volume of the waist. If you want to make a bow from a belt, mark off a lot more centimeters in length for a light and airy bow. Sew the waistband to the skirt and sew, overcasting the edges.

Step 6

The bell skirt can be different for every taste and color. Any decoration is suitable for such a skirt - fringe, ruffles, etc. There is a certain rule: the top should be simple, without complex elements, bows and patterns, preferably a light fitted blouse or blouse. Shoes for such a skirt should be heeled.
