Hey friends! Please note that as of 4/6/2012, this tutorial has been refashioned. The instructions and photos have all been updated to produce a much more professional result. If this is your first time visiting this tutorial, read on, if this is your second or third time (or 4th or 5th) give a read through the material as some of it has changed a bit.
This is the 3rd installment of creating a vent in a skirt. For the first two posts in this series, visit my other tutorials here on BurdaStyle under "Adding a Vent to the Jenny Skirt Pattern" & "How To: Draft a Vented Lining". Once you’ve drafted the lining for a vented skirt, we now come to the sewing up of it! Yay! For clarity, I’m going to start from the very beginning of the sewing process. I’ll include tips and tricks so, definitely read instead of just following along with the photos. Ok? Ok.

    Any chance of this being a downloadable pdf like your last tute? It’s very useful.

    Do you know how this would differ in order for the fashion fabric to wrap around, if you will, and make the vent on the inside of a lining (like in a typical jacket)?
