 These sweet and comfy yoga skirts are a wardrobe staple at our house. They are easy to make,
fun to wear and a great way to achieve that “Just Like Me” look for moms and daughters or big
and little sisters. I have made these in any size from toddler to adult since there are no pattern pieces, just a quick and
easy formula to follow… So come sew along with me and use up thoseawesome knit fabrics you’ve been waiting to sew with!
Suggested Fabrics
: Use stretch knits only: cotton interlock, jerseys, matte jerseys, lightweightdouble knits, stretch velvet or stre
tch lace, 54” to 58” wide. For the waistband, you can use rib
knits or any stretch fabric that has about a 50% stretch. See note at the end for a variation on thisskirt using woven cottons.
 The first thing to do is to determine your measurements. Use
Figure 1
todetermine your waist and skirt length. Using a tape measure, measure all around your waist (or 
the skirt recipient’s waist) and that number will be
Measurement A
. Next, measure from the hiparea (just below the waist) to wherever you want the hem of the skirt to fall (mid-thigh, knee, below-the-knee, etc.) and that number will be
Measurement B
. Next, using measurements A & B, we will determine the size of your skirt pattern pieces.For the double-folded yoga waistband, take
Measurement A, subtract 3 inches and divide thisnumber by 2
to get the width of each of your 2 non-elastic waistband pieces (we make these pieces much narrower than the actual waist size because there is no elastic, so the band needs to be ta
ut in order to hold up the weight of the skirt.) The height of each panel will be 15” for anysize skirt. After all the pieces are sewn together, this will result in a 7″ band that can then befolded down in half to 3.5″, which is a perfect and comfy yoga
 band for all ages.
 For example: My daughter’s waist measures 21” all around. So, 21” – 
3” = 18” / 2 = 9”. I will cut 2 waistband panels at 9” wide by 15” tall with the maximum stretch of the fabric running across the 9” width. See
Figure 2
 For the twirly skirt panel, we will take
Measurement B and add 1 inch
to it (1/2” for the seamallowance at the waist and another 1/2” for the hem allowance.) I normally cut my skirt panel the
full width of the knit fabric for all skirt sizes… this results in a su
 per full and twirly skirt for thelittle girls and a less-full, more fitted look for me. Adjust the width of this panel according toyour preferred amount of fullness.
 For example: My daughter likes her skirts to fall right above the knee. Her B measurement was
12”. So, 12” + 1” = 13”. I will cut her skirt panel at 13” high by the full width of the knit fabric,
with the maximum stretch going widthwise. See
Figure 3
 The last thing I do before sewing up my yoga skirt is to divide my skirt panel in two, widthwise.I do this because I prefer the look of two side seams on my skirts instead of one in the back. If you would rather have one skirt panel that seams in the back, you can certainly skip this step.
 Now it’s time to assemble your yoga skirt.
Create the waistband
. Place one waistband piece over the other, right sides together, and
stitch or serge along both side edges (the 15” sides) with a 1/2” seam allowance, thus creating a
fabric circle,
