Measure about 1 inch below your belly button for your Waist Measurement = (W)_______
Mark 1 ¼ ” from side of pattern and 1 inch from top . Draw curving line to connect two marks
Cut out two waistband pieces from the jersey knit.
Cut out two skirt pieces from the linen. Fold your linen fabric in half widthwise matching the selvage edges. Make sure the line you have drawn diagonally across the skirt is on the straight of the grain. You can measure from the selvage edge to the line to make sure.
Fold waistband in half wrong sides together matching side seams. Press.
Divide waist into quarters and mark with pins.
Place waistband to the right side of the skirt matching the pins at the side seams and in the middle of the skirt pieces.
Hem with a narrow hem or go easy, don’t hem it and let it fray a bit. You can sew a zig zag or straight stitch around the hem edge to keep it from fraying too much.
When you’re done, try and keep yourself from wearing it everyday…… even out to the beach.
Please let me know if there’s anything I missed!
Thanks for stopping, come back again, I am still going to show you the other skirt.
