Hi everybody. I just started sewing a little over a month ago, and I’m going to a class at Singers to learn. Right now I don’t have my own machine but I plan to get one by December. In my sewing class, I am almost finished sewing a skirt and I am a bit pleased with myself (since it’s my first time sewing) but I have two problems…1. When I put on the skirt, it bunches up around my hips. I’m wondering if it’s because of the material I’m using (cotton) or is it that the skirt is too small? It doesn’t feel tight around my hips but it keeps riding up. Maybe it should be tighter, because at my waist it has some space.
Anyway, 2. I noticed that my seams don’t match up. I would think that to correct it I should just cut the fabric til they do but I read that this is a common mistake made by beginners when the seams don’t match up. How else am I suppose to correct this then?
