Rachel Sew-a-Long Day 4

February 12, 2009


Today, we are sewing together the upper skirt pieces.  These are number 5 pieces, and you should have 4 of these.  Mine are all of the same fabric, but you can mix and match fabrics in this layer.


I like to line up pieces before sewing…it gives me a visual cue as to where they should be sewn.  Today is really simple.  Sew all of your number 5 pieces together to form a circle.



Next, you will iron all of the seams in the same direction as yesterday’s pieces.


Now, topstitch each seam.


Now, you have the upper skirt layer!  I told you today was pretty simple.  I like to take a look at how things are progressing after each step.  Your sewn pieces should look something like this.


Our next Rachel day is a tougher day.  We will be sewing the bodice pieces together.  This gets complex, as there are many pieces that need to be sewn.  So, prepare yourselves, but know that you can do it! 

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments. I’ll try to answer them the best that I can!
