I am making slow progress with the New Look skirt. The fabric I used is very loosely woven and ravels just looking at it. Interestingly there is an article in Threads on stabilizing loosely woven fabric. So I am taking my time by using straight or bias fusible seam tape to stabilize the bottom edges of the bias peplum of the skirt. I have serged finished the seam edges. I can see the need to use the tape along waist line as well.
So this will become a little more tedious than I had anticipated. More updates later.
