I can’t believe its Day 6!!! Construction is well under way and after today it will really start looking like a skirt!
A couple notes about today: we will be going out of order from the instructions for the next couple days to accommodate those putting in a lining. DO NOT WORRY! If you aren’t sewing in a lining you will still be able to follow along and achieve the same great results. Just wanted to give you a heads up if your are looking back and forth to your instruction booklet.
Today we will be covering steps 8-16 as well as inserting the zipper. Yesterday we left off at the iron where you pressed everything you had worked on. To start off today, you will head back to your sewing machine with the following pieces:
- center front (D/L)
- side front/pocket/pocket facing (all connected)
- side back/center back (connected)
In the following video I will walk you through all the steps covered today!
If you are a newer sewist and the idea of inserting a zipper sounds utterly frightening… don’t be scared! You can TOTALLY do it. Go ahead and watch this short video for a deeper look into inserting invisible zippers:
Tomorrow we will be assembling the lining (optional of course) & attaching it to the skirt. As well as putting all those lovely pleats into place.
Happy Patti Pocket Sewing!
