You can never have enough simple summer skirts that look great. Quinta is sewn quickly, this is mainly due to the elastic waistband, the most striking detail is the “pointy” hem, ie the sides are a lot longer than the center front and center back. In addition, the side seams have open slits and the hem forms a wide panel that can be easily set off in a contrasting fabric.
Center front length 57-61cm
In these instructions, the quinta was sewn from jersey and polyester satin as a facing.
We recommend flowing fabrics, such as polyester satin, viscose, silk, but also modal jersey.
|Size 34-50||main fabric||1.20 m||140cm wide|

To sew this skirt you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.
In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern.
First you take the skirt parts. There are two pleats in each skirt part. Place the snip that's closer to the center of the skirt on top of the snip next to it. The pleat content is towards the center and the pleats are 2cm wide. Now sew the four pleats to the seam allowance. Then you take the skirt and overcast the four side seams.
Then neaten the straight edges on the four pocket bags (here: marked in yellow).
Place a finished pocket bag right sides together on one side seam of the skirt. You sew this together at 0.7 cm from the waistband to the lower knot. Lock well.
Now it's time to close the pocket bags. To do this, place the skirt parts and pocket bag right sides together and sew the pocket bag closed (here: see yellow line). You overcast the seam allowance of the bag together.
Now all you have to do is close the side seams. The yellow lines in the picture show you the sewing lines. You have to close the side seam from snap to snap because there is a slit at the hem. You can only close the short piece on the waistband up to the snap, otherwise you would sew up the pocket opening. Iron the side seam apart. It continues with the approach strips. Fold it lengthwise and sew the sloping sides together. Then turn and iron.
You now attach the finished stripes to the skirt. Don't be surprised if the stripe is slightly shorter than the edge of the skirt. You are supposed to sew on the strip between the snaps (left and right will overhang 2cm). Iron the seam up and neaten the seam allowance together.
Fold in the 2 cm that protrude twice and iron them flat.
Now you sew the seam allowance from the slit. You can do this in one seam (here: yellow line indicates backstitch).
Fold both of the pocket pouches into the front part and pin them to the waistband with a pin. You can neaten the seam allowance of the waistband in a circle.
For the waistband you need a 4cm wide rubber band. You cut this to size according to the pattern piece. Sew the ends of the ribbon together and neaten the seam allowance.
Then pin the rubber band to the waistband in such a way that the fullness is evenly distributed and sew it in place.
Finally, just iron the seam allowance down.
