Making Table Skirts

Diane highlighted stylish skirted tables a few days ago, so I thought I’d add this sewer’s opinion. Table skirts are very simple to make and they are easy enough for beginning sewers. A simple one could be perfect for your first sewing project.

There are number of excellent skirted table tutorials out on the web. Arin Bodden of eHow offers these directions for making an elastic table skirt. Ronnie Dauber, also with eHow, offers a tutorial on making tulle table skirts.

Estimate your yardage for a skirted table in the same way you would for a table cloth. It is easy to estimate the fabric needed for round tablecloths and square and rectangular ones.
