Welcome back! I hope you all managed to get your fabric chosen and cut out. Don’t worry if you haven’t; it’s not too late to join up!
Today I’d like to welcome Miranda from Inspinration! She’s a super talented sewist and a fellow contestant for Project Run and Play. I’m so impressed that she took the time to participate in my tour! She’s sharing how she did improvisational pin tucks on her Maple Skirt.
Today in the Facebook Group I’m chatting with you all about interfacing and staystiching. Yes, I’m going to go a little Tim Gunn on you all; you don’t want to miss out!
Here’s the rest of the steps we are completely today:
Apply your interfacing to the front placket, waistband lining, and pocket button placement. More on that on my Facebook live video.
Transfer all your markings. I do this after applying the interfacing since my wax based chalk disappears with heat. To mark the pocket placement, I put my pattern piece on top of the fabric and poke pins through the pattern piece. Then mark where they go through the fabric. You’ll want these markings on the right side.
Staystitch. These are simple lines of straight stitching a smidge inside the seam allowance. They prevent the skirt waist area from stretching out as you handle it.
Finish off the raw edges of the center front (straight edge of front pieces). This is what you’ll have at this point.
Today I’ve let you off easy but tomorrow we’ll be doing more sewing! Looking forward to sewing with you! Share any questions and comments in our Facebook Group.
