Can you see the topstitching?
I topstitched the front princess seams on both sides and on each edge of the waistband. The invisible zipper was pretty easy, thanks to a tutorial I watched here. I only wish I’d stabilized the zipper opening, as suggested, to avoid bubbling of the fabric near the zipper. It’s not that bad.
This skirt doesn’t come with pattern pieces for a lining, so I made them
myself. Linings should be 1-2″ shorter than the skirt, so I took all
the skirt pattern pieces, folded them up, and cut out my lining. I
attached it on the top to the back yoke facing, hand-stitched around the
zipper and sha-zaam! A lined skirt was born. So comfortable I could
go commando if I wanted to! Don’t worry, I won’t.
