Happy Friday everybody!! Hope you're doing good!! I clearly have a gathered skirt situation happening because this is the second one in two weeks. Considering how much I don't think they flatter me....I must be trying to figure out a way to fix that!! Lol!!
For gathered skirt, the research (youtube videos LOL) I found says to double or even triple your waist measurement! Thats a lot of fabric for me, so I decided to just add 1 yard and give it a try! I folded that in half to get two equal pieces, and cut that. Then for one of those pieces, I folded and cut that in half. So I had 3 pieces. One big piece for the front, two smaller pieces for the back. I found a pocket pattern piece laying around and cut 4 of those, and my waistband was 4 inches wide.
Next, I attached the pockets, sewed them and the sides down, gathered the skirt WITH my gathering foot lol!!, interfaced and attached the waistband, installed the zipper, and closed the back seam down, sewed the waistband in the dutch and I was all done!! Sure wish I would've took some pics of this whole process!!...Next time:)
I don't think this one added too much fullness to me like my past attempts have, but I'm still figuring things out, so I'll be making more until I find the perfect formula for me!!!
Have a wonderful weekend y'all, and I'll talk to you on Monday!!!
