One by one, I pinned a layer in place, stretching out the top to the side and following the lines I had drawn on the under skirt. I then (back on 2.5 stitch length) sewed the tier to the skirt. I continued until all the layers were done. I’m starting to get pretty excited at this point because it was actually working.
The final steps included folding the skirt in half (inside out) and sewing the seam together. I wish I had lined up my color strips a little more carefully. Then, I attached the top elastic waste band (that I took off the original skirt) with a lot of pins. I just wanted to make sure it was all lined up well on that break between the band and the red tier. I sewed it on and the skirt was done. So, there you have it. My first sewing tutorial. I probably fumbled through the tutorial as much as I fumbled through the project. I do hope it all made sense to anyone inspired to give it a go.
