Tutorial: How to create a high-low skirt using the Take 5 pattern

Hello there Little Lizard King Friends! Today we are going to show you how to create an adorable high-low circle skirt using the super comfy and sweet Take 5 pattern. Creating this darling skirt takes literally no time at all, and allows for even more versatility to the awesome Take 5 pattern.

Start by printing out the pattern, we are going to be using the larger pattern piece. Once you have the pattern assembled, use a straight edge or ruler to extend the edge lines creating a 90 degree angle.

Then trim off the grey seam allowances on both sides of the pattern (make sure not to cut out the waist quarter circle yet!) 

We are going to take the fabric and create a double fold with the pattern edges on both sides of the folds. We will cut a full circle from the fabric now. 

Now we are going to unfold the circle and fold it in half, it may help to press your fabric at this point to ensure everything is lining up correctly. Fold the semi circle in half to determine the center, mark this point with a pin. Unfold the quarter fold, to create just a semi circle with your pin in the middle, place fabric to the side. 

Pick up the pattern piece and cut the waist , once you have the waistcut out trace it creating a mirror image. This should leave you with a semi circle. Take your waist pattern piece and place it on the skirt piece that should be folded into a semi circle. Measure down 1.5” from where your pin mark is and place the middle of the waist pattern piece there.

Cut out the waist on the fold, this will create the high low skirt! Finish assembling the Take 5 skirt per tutorial, and make sure to share your creations on the Little Lizard King Sewing Pattern Group on Facebook. Happy sewing!
