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

Heyhey,

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
