Update on NL skirt

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.


  1. I hate those PITA fabrics taht ravel and scoot all over the place. So annoying! Your striped dress though, is wonderful.

    1. Thanks for compliments on striped dress. I wore to work yesterday and definitely passed the wear ability test.

      Hope all is well with you and DH
