How to sew the Tarragon Overlay Skirt:
1- Pin and sew the under skirt at center back.
2- Repeat step 1 with the overlay skirt, pin and sew at center back.
3- When working with delicate fabrics, use a piece of muslin over the fabric to press the seams open.
4- Pin the two skirt layers together, sheer over solid, and sew 1/4″ at the top.
5- To sew the elasticated waistband, stack the two layers of fabric and fold them right sides together. Sew 1/4″ along the edge.
6- Turn the waistband right side out, then remove any beads that are on the inner side of the waist.
7- Right sides together, sew the waistband onto the skirt. Leave a small opening at the back to insert the elastic.
8- Use a safety pin on one end of the elastic to bring it through the waistband. Calculate a good amount needed to scrunch the waist, then sew the elastic together with a zig-zag stitch.
9- As the final step, hem the bottom of both skirt layers separately with a rolled hem.
In the realm of fashion, every stitch is a brushstroke and you are the artist. As you design and sew, let these projects be a reminder that your creations have the power to make a statement. Fashion is your canvas, paint it with passion!
