Easy Update:
Mini Skirt

Filed Under:

Raise the idea of a table skirt to a new level this spring with an unexpected mini version. This easy cover protects your tabletop and exposes the beautiful base of your table. It works perfectly in an entryway.

How To:

This table skirt is constructed from two simple pieces of linen: a circle of fabric that spans the entire surface of our tabletop and a box-pleated ruffle. (Our ruffle drops 10 inches from the edge of our table).

We used about seven yards of fabric for our 54-inch table. However, this will vary according to your table size.

For an experienced sewer this is a simple afternoon project. For an easier option, commission a tailor to create a custom skirt following the guidelines above.

Tip: We loved the unfinished edge, or selvage, of our fabric, so we chose to leave the cloth as is instead of finishing it or adding a decorative trim.
