I have to do this. Years ago I would have it done already as I was pretty good seamstress back in the day. However, not having done clothes for little girls in 20 years or so…(I quilt now!) I have to ask…I remember my mother teaching me how to do this back in the 70’s when I first started sewing all my own clothes so I know it can be done, i just dont’ remember how to do it
A basic gathered skirt…you measure the waist for the waist band and how wide you want it and cut it double that and fold down. Then you just take a yard of fabric, gather the top and fit the skirt into the waist band…gathering as needed, sew and then turn the waist band down to cover the seam. Is this correct? Will it work? I just am not sure I remember it right.
And kind of the same thing for an apron over a dress…the waist band is from side to side with long ties to the back, and you just gather the apron front into the waist band…is that correct?
Thanks for any help. I have to start theses Monday and its just been a long time for me!
