how to sew a maxi skirt with pockets: seams, zipper and hem


here are the next steps for the maxi skirt with pockets, the first part can be found here. Dont forget to vote for the october drawings!

DSCF5204next I pinned 2 skirt parts together and the the parts with pockets to each side of those 2

DSCF5205the pockets are to the side, then I sewed

DSCF5206then I pinned 2 more parts on one side and the last 2 on the other, sewed and serged all seams

DSCF5207also serged the open edges of the centre back. I normally forget that and then serge after I put the zip in, which is way more annoying, so I am proud of me for remembering it this time!

DSCF5208then I sewed the seam up until where the zip gets in and that part with wide stitching

DSCF5209ironed the seam allowance apart, and the rest of the seams while at it 😉

DSCF5210now I pinned the zipper under the seam

DSCF5211sewed around

DSCF5212unpicked the wide stitching

DSCF5213and tested the zipper

DSCF5225next I pinned the hem, by double folding it inwards

DSCF5226and sewed.

I hope this was helpful! Let me know if there are any questions! I am still learning to write helpful tutorials, so all questions help me get better at it.

next monday I show you how I did the waistband.

keep sewing and smiling
