Everyday Play Skirt - Sew-a-long, Day 3

Everyday Play Skirt Sew a long Day 3

Today we are working on pockets! You can set your pattern aside for today because this is a fun little add on. Lets start by cutting out our inseam pockets. You can go grab your favorite pattern piece if you have one or use the chart below to cut out the size you need.

6-12 Months
7” x 6.25”
12 Months -2T 7.5” x 6.5”
3T-5 7.5” x 6.75”
6-8 8” x 6.75”
10+ 8” x 7”
Start by surging or zigzag stitching 3 sides of your pockets. I did one pocket per side so finished all 4 pieces. Once you have completed that pin your pockets place 1.5" down from the top edge on both sides of the skirt with right sides together. I surged down the length of the skirt but you only need to stitch the pocket in place backscratching on both ends.

Now you are going to sew the front and back panels together, stitch down the top 1.5" and follow around the pocket and continue down the remainder of the length of the skirt. After you complete both side you will a have a complete piecing together your skirt panels.

If you are only adding inseam pockets you can stop there for today. For the other skirt I am making, I used the Blue Ribbon Winner pocket. We did the sew a long not long ago so maybe you can add this too!
Now you should have your skirts pieced together, on Day 4 we will be adding and ruffles, trims, or rickrack to your skirts.
Also make sure you stop over and Thank Andover Fabrics for sponsoring this Sew-a-longs prizes!

Thanks for Sewing a long!
