|Last piece is the skirt part, and for that I folded the fabric and made it a few inches wider than the hip measurement.
Those are your pattern pieces.
|Now take the first strip from the front waistband and grab some bias tape, sandwich the strip with the bias tape.|
|Sew along the edge of the bias tape to secure.|
|Continue doing that until all of the pieces are done. (top only)|
|Then lay the pieces so they just overlap and sew in place.|
|When you are done you should have a front waistband with some strips of bias tape through it.|
|Do the same for the back piece and then sew the strip for the elastic casing to the top of the waistband.|
|Then fold it to the back and sew a line to create the casing.|
|Slide in the elastic and sew in place at both sides.|
|Next with right sides together sew the front and back waistbands together.|
|Then sew the edge of the skirt piece together to make a large tube.|
|With right sides together pin the skirt to the waistband. I made the seam meet in the middle back and had it flat in back with pleats to fit the skirt to the waistband in front.|
|Then hem the bottom to your liking and you are done.|
|Skirt number one with some nice pops of color|
|It’s a simple, but fun detail that you can add to any skirt.|
|And we just love how a skirt welcomes spring!
More fun skirts are coming up!
