I made a blue, satin, gathered skirt by combining the following tutorials found on Gertie’s Blog For Better Sewing and This Big Oak Tree:
I expanded on the design a bit by sewing in a full gathered Blemburg lining (so comfy) to support the weight of the satin a bit and also installed an invisible zipper by hand. My attempt at an invisible hem was, well, not very invisible, but nobody noticed when I wore it. I also added in-seam pockets which were awesome and bound all of the edges with bias tape. The bias tape got a bit bulky in places, especially around the pockets, but it wasn’t visible due to the size and weight of the skirt.
Maybe I’ll make a petticoat for a more classic silhouette.
Got any ideas for finishing satin?
