Skirt progress

The skirt is almost complete.  I need to stitch the front and front side pieces together.  This is the last sewing step in the process, except of course the hemming.

The front pieces overlap each other and require that the skirt facings be attached before you overlap the right and left front pieces.  You have to baste these front pieces together before stitching the front and side front pieces together.

This is not difficult to do . Adding a lining adds some bulk to those seams and with one side with gathers you must adjust those to how you want the gathers to look before the final stitching also.  The pattern does not call for one but I like linings in some skirts, particularly wool.   

You definitely want to make sure that you have fitted the skirt prior to this last step also as it makes it more difficult to remove facings and take up seams.    I had to make some final fitting adjustments for the waist area, the waist was a little too loose. 

All in all, I like the look of this skirt and may decide to make another one.
