Don't forget that Team Lizard is offering a free pattern at the end of this Sew-A-Long to three winners in three different categories.
Today we'll cover steps featured on pages 13-15. For a fun option (or if you are short on fabric), use multiple fabric pieces for the skirt. To do this, keep the length of the fabric the same, but cut more than two pieces for the skirt.
Just make sure that the final skirt width equals the total skirt width in the measurement chart, including seam allowance. i.e. If the pattern requires you to cut two skirt pieces that are 18" long x 24" wide and you want to use four pieces for the skirt. Cut four pieces that are 18" long x 13" wide. Use coordinating or contrasting fabrics. To do this, divide the total width by the number of panels/pieces desired, and add a bit for seam allowance.
Regardless of the number of pieces used in the skirt, place the pieces right sides together and sew to attach.
This is also a great place to add decorative trim. Pom Pom trim is a cute detail on the bottom of skirts (if you don't have a cat!). Alternatively, add jumbo rick-rack, lace, or ribbon a few inches from the bottom edge around the entire skirt for a fun effect.
Come back tomorrow for Day 4 when we complete the dress using pages 16-19 of the pattern!
