Day 2: Lets start by serging the edges of those pattern pieces we cut out yesterday.
For my lacey skirt I serged the edges but do not worry if you do not have a serger- just zigzag stitch those edges and we are ready to add lace or fabric ruffles.
OPTION A: If you are skipping extra frill like lace go ahead and finish your edges, another option would be to roll hem the edges now to save some hemming time later. OPTION B: If frill is in your plans, go ahead and grab your fabrics or lace. Now is a good time to justify a trip to the fabric store again... if we even really need an excuse. I bought pre-ruffled lace which helped speed up the process. Go ahead and sew all those ruffles onto the swirly panels.
Once you get that done pause and we will see you tomorrow! You have just completed pages 8-12 of the tutorial. Hope you are loving this just as much as I am. If you have kids on the loose in your house put the cut out pieces somewhere safe. (speaking from experience)
With Sew Much Love,
