Once done with the zipper, all that’s left is to stitch the waistband facing to the outer waistband along the top edge and then stitch in the ditch just below the lower edge of the petersham. To stitch in the ditch refers to stitching through all layers, in the area just below the seam allowance where the waistband and skirt sections meet. Stitch from the right side of the skirt and go slowly, using a thread that matches your skirt for added invisibility. And from there, you’ll have a lovely petersham waistband and a beautifully inserted zipper to boot. xoxo, Sunni
