|I must have liked it a lot!! I bought six yards!|
I pulled out my trusty OLD Stretch and Sew pattern for straight, four gore and six gore skirts. This one happens to be four gore. It has less flair than the six gore.. it probably is very close to an A line but with four seams instead of two. And with this print, unless I wanted a lot of swing, the seams will be hidden so there was no real reason for going six gore.
I pulled out the serger, whipped up the seams and clean finished the hem and top edge. I sewed my favorite no roll 1 1/4 inch elastic into a tube, folded down the top casing and stitched it down using my regular sewing machine and the zipper foot. Using the zipper foot gets the casing nice and snug. Even non-rolling elastic benefits from this application.
Then I switched over to the blind hem foot and after pinning up the hem I sewed that on the regular machine too.
Voila! About an hour later (allowing for pressing the seams and the hem) I added this skirt to my wardrobe. I didn't think about taking a pic of me wearing it, but after I hung it on the closet door to put away, I took a photo of the sweater I paired it with (minus the white tank top that was under the sweater).
