SALIDA SEWALONG DAY 5 – TOPSTITCHING, HEMS, AND HOOK & EYE (STEPS 35 – 38)

December 7, 2018

Welcome to the last day of the Salida Skirt Sewalong. Thank you so much for following along. Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Step 35 – Starting at center back, edgestitch the entire waistband at 1/8” from the finished edge, pivoting at corners.

Step 36 – Zip up the skirt and mark the position for the waistband hook and eye. Hand sew onto the waistband as shown. Make sure that you only sew through the inside layer on the outer part of the hook and eye. I usually sew this one on first since it is more tricky.

For the smaller, inside part of the hook and eye, feel free go through all layers since it won’t be show on the inside waistband.

VIEW A ONLY (For View B, skip to Step 38)

Step 37 – All done except for the hem! Fold the bottom raw edge of the skirt up by 1/4”, wrong sides touching, and press.

Fold up again by 3/4”. Pin and press.

To secure the hem, stitch close to the fold.

 

VIEW B ONLY:

Step 38 – Fold the bottom raw edge of the middie skirt up by 1/4”, wrong sides touching, and press. Fold up again by 1/4”. Pin and press. To secure the hem, stitch close to the fold.

 

Congrats! You are finished!
