Hi All, here is the list of supplies you need to sew poltam skirt. I've included where I've bought each one.
Sewing supplies to make a skirt - what is needed to make a skirt

Sewing Machine

I have a Janome basic sewing machine- Janome J3-18 Sewing Machine. It has  straight stitch, zig zag stitch, applique stitch and comes with a buttonhole foot which is very handy.
Scissors I had the little one and the larger fabric shears I bought - 5 Star Tailors Shears 210mm
Measuring tape Sewing / Tailors Tape Measure 150cm - PINK
Seam ripper Came with Gutermann Sewing Thread Kit. Can't live without this.
Pins Hemline Coloured Plastic Headed Pins, 34mm, Value Pk of 200
Scale From my sons pencil box
Interface Bought them from local fabric shop.
Thread Real cheap one - WMA 24 Assorted Colors Polyester Sewing Thread-Pack of 24 (does the job for me, breaks at times - a very good value for the kind of projects I'm doing) and other Gutermann (really strong but expensive) Gutermann Sewing Thread Kit  
Bobbin 4 came with sewing machine
Fabric and Lining Bought them from local fabric shop. Fabric required - I'll post the calculations.
Elastic Bought them from local fabric shop. Length - I'll post the calculations. Width - you can buy 2cm, 2.5 cm or 3cm.
Tailors chalkTailor's Chalk Triangle - Set of 3 Red, White, Blue
Spray starch
This is optional - If you are using a slippery fabric like viscose, rayon then you need it. If you are using cotton then you dont. I bought mine from Spray Starch from Dr Beckmann and Spray Starch from Dylon. Prefer the dylon one. The Dr Beckmann one foams and doesn't spray too well but does the job. The dylon one gives a really good stiffness to the fabric.

Thanks for reading.
Its time for me to update my weekly sewing report. Lot of unplanned activities  :)
