Step 4 Centre back seam, slit (skirt)

Lay back skirt panels right sides together. Pin centre back seam, pinning back vent closed. Stitch centre back seam from upper edge to slit mark. Backstitch to secure start and end of seam. Stitch vent closed, at a long stitch setting (2). Press seam allowances open, from upper edge to approx. 5 cm (2 ins) above vent allowances. Press vent allowances onto left skirt panel, tapering allowance of right skirt panel above top of vent, to avoid needing to clip into it. Press facing on right back skirt panel to inside, on fold line. Trim away facing of left skirt panel 1.5 cm (5/8 in) from line marked LEFT EDGE (3). ¬Neaten vent allowances and seam allowances. Work from right side of skirt to topstitch left skirt panel diago¬nally, as marked on pattern, catching vent allowances.
