Step 3 Sewing

Note: Stitch seams on stretch fabrics with a special stretch stitch or with a narrow zigzag stitch. Stitch hems with a twin machine needle to keep them elastic.

Gather side seam edges of skirt panels between asterisks to 27 cm (10 3/4 ins). Lay the two skirt panels, right sides together, line up, pin and sew the side seams, catching backing strips along gathering. Press seams open but do not press gathering flat.
Remove gathering threads which are visible on outer side.

Stitch side seams of waistband. Fold waistband in half with the wrong side in. Press the upper edge of the waistband. Stitch waistband edges together with the upper edge of skirt, right sides facing. Press allowances onto skirt. Fold upper waistband edge to outside.

Fold and press the hem allowance to inside. Stitch from right side with a twin needle, 3 cm (11/4 ins) from lower edge.
