so here are the next steps of the crazy print skirt, the pattern can be found here.
I folded the fabric parallel to the selvedges at a good place in the print, and ironed that fold, then I placed the skirt pattern right at the fold, pinned and cut
now I took the new cut piece and placed it again on the fabric (I used about 3m) and made sure the print will be the same on both pieces
next I cut the flap in fold
folded it open and placed it on the fabric to match up the fabric for the second part
now I sewed into the left side seam an invisible zipper, tutorials on how to sew in and invisible zipper can be found here and here. then I sewed the other side seam
and because my fabric is fraying quite a bit, I used my serger on the seam allowances of my side seams, be smarter then me and serge the left side seam (the one with the zipper) before you put the zipper in, each edge for itself
now I pinned the flap together, the bottom end stays open, same as the lowest 4 cm of the sides
sew and cut of the corners, then turn the right side out and iron the seams
you start getting a picture of what it will look like!
I hope this was helpful, if there are any questions, please let me know, so I can get better in this and write more helpful tutorials!
keep sewing and smiling
