Peggy Sue Dress Sewing Pattern, Sew-A-Long, Day 4

Hello Ladies!! I hope you have been sharing on LLK Cafe Facebook page. I know I am loving what everyone is doing. Ok day 4 - we are going to Work on the Skirt Skirt: Option: adding a ruffle- see pattern instructions. 27) Grab the 2 skirt pieces you cut on day 1 and fold each in half widthwise. Right sides together. IMG_1172 28)You will now need to use either a measuring tape or ruler and a fabric pen to cut the circle skirt from the fabric you just folded in half. Use the Skirt Length measurement found on the Measurement Chart (page 3). For example I am making a size 7/8- my skirt length needs to be 22". Using a fabric pen and ruler or tape measure start at the top corner of the folded fabric and mark the required skirt length. Make several marks and then connect them to make a curved line.
