  3. For Skirt: Lay Skirt pieces together and sew side seams using a 3/8” seam allowance. Repeat for Tulle Overskirt and Petal Overskirt.
     
  4. On the right side, layer the Tulle Overskirt over the Skirt with top edges and side seams lined up. Topstitch 1/4” from edge. Then layer the Petal Overskirt on top of the Tulle Overskirt with the side seams lined up and the top edge extending 1/2” above the top edge of the Skirt. Fold the extended edge to the inside and baste.
     
  5. Cut elastic to the correct waist length plus 1”. Overlap ends of elastic and stitch securely.
     
  6. On the wrong side of the skirt, place the elastic 1/4” below the folded top edge of the Petal Overskirt and topstitch. (Note: While sewing, stretch elastic to fit skirt edge.)


Wings Instructions:

  1. Cut out pattern pieces around outer edges.
     
  2. Pin Wing pattern pieces to Stiff Felt and cut out.

  7. Lay a Small Wing on top of one side of the Center Piece so that it angles downward, but lines up with the edge of the large Wing. Stitch next to first row of stitching. Repeat for other Small Wing. (See Fig. 2) (Note: This is the wrong side of Wings.)
