18 Sep Drape Gather Skirt – Sewing Instructions
- Front Panel Seams – 1cm (⅜”)
- Centre Back Seam – 1.25cm (½”)
- Waistband and waistline – 1cm (⅜”)
- Hem Allowance – 2cm (¾”)
The next step is to prepare the gather drape seam for sewing. Run two rows of gathering stitch, along the gather seam on the side/back panel, between the notches for both side/back skirt pieces.
Tie off the gather thread ends at one end only and pull the other gather threads up until the notches on the side/back skirt match the centre front panel.
