so here are the next steps for the flap skirt. If you missed the first parts you can find them here and here. I am facing some difficulties here, in my edit window all the writing is here, but if I view post its only the pictures and no words… I am wondering what I am doing wrong… lets hope it works now.
next I cut my waistband parts, with the width of 7cm, so in the end my waistband will be 2.5cm wide
I cut one long strip, the length of the back skirt waist plus 10cm to each side, so the ends will reach into the front as in my drawing, and then I cut 2 short waistband parts just for the short distance beween side seam and the flap, measured that and added seam allowance to each end
So I started with the small waistband parts and pinned and sewed one over the open zipper
the other one, placed 1cm (or your seam allowance) over the side seam, but only sewn starting from the side seam
now I ironed the seam allowance inside and the waistband part up – on both sides
at the side with the seam I cut the seam allowance in, so I could fold the seam allowance inside
and then fold the waistband over
at the end with zipper, I didn’t need to cut in
pinned in place and sew parallel to the seam in place, you could also sew by hand, so its invisible if you prefer that
thats what my skirt looked like with the first small parts of waistband attached, next monday I show you how I sewed the long waistband part into place and added the flap.
I hope this was helpful for you! If not, please ask!
keep sewing and smiling
