14. Pin the basted edge of the belly panel to the wrong side of the skirt, along the skirt’s edge that you have folded and basted. Using a zigzag stitch (or whatever you prefer to use with knits), seam the belly panel to the skirt. Seam it one more time since this is an area of stress. The skirt should gather a bit when you’re through since the circumference of the belly panel should be smaller than that of the skirt
15. Press and trim seams as needed. Finish the pattern as indicated: probably just the hem is left. Voila!
