New York, New Yo...
Cut out two panels of each tier for a total of four rectangles.
Next, attach the sides of the shorter tier and sew French seams using this tutorial. You will now have one wide strip of fabric. (Don’t forget to press as you go!) Repeat for the longer tier.
(Please note that this method will result in center front and center back seams as opposed to side seams. For an alternative look with side seams, consider drafting a separate waistband. For order of construction, sew the shorter tier as a tube – sewing up both side seams – and repeat for the longer tier. Sew the hems next. Then, layer the shorter tier over the longer tier as worn and baste around to hold both layers together. Create the straight waistband with elastic and attach to the top of skirt.)
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
