It’s time to attach the lining to the vent extension of the skirt shell. We’re almost done here! Yay! Alright so now, let’s determine which side the vent extension on the skirt shell needs to lay. To do this, lay out the lining, right side out. Whichever side the inverted vent extension is on is the side that the skirt shell’s vent extension should point toward. Now that was a mouthful and you’d think I could figure this out before now, but every single time I seem to do it wrong. Weird, I know! According to my lining, my vent extension should be pressed and stitched to the left (this with the wrong side up). On the skirt shell, press the center back seam to the clip (from Step 3) open and then press the vent extension to the correct side. Satin stitch following the seam line of the 45 degree angle along the top of the vent extension; stitch through all layers.
