Today is the day we attach the lining. This is a very exciting step and its really going to give your skirt such a beautiful, clean finished look.
Now, you will recall in my post about drafting the lining that those of you who are making View B (the midi version) may want to save fabric by doing a partial lining and only cutting the lining for the View A size. If that is you, you will not finish the hem as shown in this video. Go ahead and skip that part. You will do a simple turned hem on your shorter lining, and we will attach your hem facings like normal in next weeks video.
BEFORE YOU WATCH, there are a few steps that need to be completed before you start the steps in the video. You must first assemble your lining pieces. This is quite simple, you just follow the same technique for assembling your skirt pieces:
- Stitch the center back to side back pieces.
- Stitch the center front to side front pieces.
- Stitch the side seams: on the right side stitch the full seam, on the left stitch only down from the notch. Hold the pieces up to you if you aren’t sure which is the right tor left, remember that the lining will have the seam allowance facing away from you on the “outside” not toward you like the self.
I will begin the video by showing you what the assembled lining looks like before we move on to the next step.
Now without further ado, here is how you will assemble your all in one lining.
Tomorrow we will be stitching down those pleats and attaching our waistband. We are so close to being done I can taste it!
