It’s time to stitch the skirt shell’s vent extension to the lining vent extension. Remember how you left a 5/8″ seam allowance at the edge of the vent extension from Step 2. I know that was awhile ago, but you did. From here, we’ve got to match that up to the lining and stitch them together. To do this, turn both the skirt shell and the lining wrong side out. Line up the vent extensions. With right sides together, stitch along one side of one vent extension, matching notches from the top of the vent extension to the bottom of the lining. Do the same for the other side. Press. Turn lining right side out while at the same time slipping it over the wrong side of the skirt shell. Voila!
