The following are some of the design details and techniques used to construct this holiday party skirt.
Hook & Eyes
These are fully hand sewn.
Fully Enclosed Waistband
If you are not adding any lining to the skirt, this is the best technique to keep all your mess (threads, fraying fabric, etc.) hidden.
By hand, I pulled the ends of the threads until an even gather that matched the length of the waistband was achieved. My tip is to take your time so you don't snap the threads!
Bound Seam Finish
PS-I will be releasing a blog post on how to create your own binding and how to sew a bound seam finish soon!
