The back of the skirt

I compleated the back of the skirt today.

I started by pinning and marking the stripes. The plan was to sew them to the side using directions for tuxedo stripes. I pinned it the width I wanted stripes to end up plus the seam allowance right sides together, and drew a line where I wanted to sew.


After sewing the stripes to both sides I folded them so the right sides were facing, the other side of the stripes will be sewn in with the side seams.


Then I sewed on the pockets. I secured the top and all the corners with back stitching.


I am loving how this is turning out!! My daughter will love it and hopes to wear it asap, and is bugging me to work on it whenever she gets the chance.
