 Groovy Gathered Skirt

Materials:

  • Waist band: 2 pcs. (12" x 4")
  • Skirt: yop layer 2 pcs. (16" x 5")
  • Bottom layer (plain) 2 pcs. (16" x 7")
  • Sewing machine and thread
     

Instructions:

  1. Let's start with the waist band. Bring the short sides together, wrong side facing together, sew straight stitches 1/8" away from the seam. Sew both short sides.

  2. Turn your waist band inside out. Fold on the crease where you have sewn the straight stitches and sew straight stitches 1/4" away from the edge. We've just made a french seam.  Do the same to the other short side.

  3. Fold twice (1/4" folded twice under) one of the longer side of your waist band (this will be the top part of your waist band) and sew a hem with straight stitches. Repeat the same steps for the top and bottom layer of your skirt.
