Malibu Sew-Along // Day 4

Thursday, May 07, 2015

We're moving on to the skirt today!! Note: All seam allowances are 1/2" unless noted otherwise.

Place two skirt panels right sides together. Pin and stitch along one long side only. Finish the seam and press it to one side. Open up the skirt panel on your work surface.

Mark the center of your elastic. Pin the center of the elastic at the skirt seam 1/4" from the top raw edge. Pin the two ends to the side edges of the skirt. Stretch the elastic to be even with the skirt panels and pin in several places in between keeping the elastic 1/4" from the top raw edge of the skirt.

Stitch the elastic to the skirt panels with a wide zig-zag stitch stretching the elastic as you go. You want the elastic stretched and the fabric flat but unstretched. Backstitch at each end to secure the elastic.

Fold the skirt panels right sides together and stitch the other side of the skirt closed. Finish the seam.

Tomorrow we will attach the skirt to the bodice and finish!
