- Start by gathering and preparing your materials. Pre-wash your fabrics and add the interfacing to the waistband, panels and straps.
I like to press the interfacing from the middle to the edges of the pattern pieces to avoid bubbles on the finished part.
Also gather all the needed materials and keep them at hand. This will make the construction a bit faster.
- Place two pieces of the strap together, right sides facing and pin.
- Sew the strap pieces together 3/8 inch from the edge. Start sewing around the middle of the longest side of the strap, so it will be easier to leave a 4 inch opening on it to turn to the right side.
When you reach the corners, stop your sewing machine and lift the presser foot.
- Turn the straps and continue.
- As mentioned before, leave the 4 inches opening to turn the strap to the right side.
- Cut the threads
And trim the excess fabric, leaving about 1.8 inch
Also, trim the corners as showed in the picture below.
Now, turn to the right side.
And press flat. 6. Topstitch the straps by sewing with a contrasting thread 1/8 inch from the edge.
- Add the D-ring to the right strap and but it aside.
- Repeat the process with the other strap.
- Place front and back pieces of the right side panel together, right sides facing.
- Pin them together, leaving about 2 to 4” space between pins
- Sew the panels together 3/8 from the edge.
- As mentioned in the straps section, reach the corner (3/8 inch before the corner actually) and stop your machine to lift the presser foot and turn the panel to the other side.
5. Also, remember to trim the corners as shown below:
- Trim the excess fabric on the rest of the panel, only leaving about 1/8 inch.
- Turn the panels to the right side and press, first with your hands and then with the iron to make the panels flat.
- Now, place the straps to the panels and pin them there. I would strongly advise you to sew the straps after the skirt is constructed, so you are completely sure that the position is the correct for your figure.
And that is all for today!!!
Hope you have enjoyed this Sew along and makes it easier to construct the lovely Addison Skirt.
