Lesson #4 Sewing Our Skirt Part 1

Hi Darlings!

I hope your machines are set up and ready to go ;-) today's video is all about sewing! I will post the sewing videos in 3 or 4 parts over the course of this week so everyday until the end of the week we will  be sewing! In today's video we will be sewing our front pieces and back pieces together, stay stitching, pressing seams and attaching fronts to back.

See you tomorrow with my easy invisible zipper installation video using a standard zipper foot.

  3. Good evening! I followed your video. I got confused on the stay stitching. Did you sew the top of the skirt? I couldn't tell on the video. I did sew the front and back pieces. I was a little confused. Can you help me out? Thanks, Precious

    1. Yes the top of the skirt, get use to looking at the pictures in your pattern instructions, it shows the pieces with top stitching across the top of the skirt.

    1. Yes, left side with the back facing you (remember for the lining you need to mirror that and do it on the right side with the back facing you ;-)

  5. Since it a simply skirt what is the dif with the back and front? Kinda look same to me after sewing the sides. I had to pay very close attention to where i place the front part. Just in case what do i pay particular attention to know the different?

    1. Remember that is what the notches are for. I state that the triple notches are on the back (look at the pattern pieces) and the front has two notches, that is how you know which is the front and which is the back. But yes, the pieces front and back are almost the same ;-)
