New! Exclusive One-Seam Skirt Bundle Boxes available at Nancy Zieman Productions ShopNZP.com

Note from Team NZP

 

Before cutting skirt rectangle, wrap greatest stretch of fabric rectangle around waist and test-fit through hips. Mark rectangle skirt width with pins – with desired ease in mind. Reminder to allow an additional 1/2″ for seam allowances.

New! Exclusive One-Seam Skirt Bundle Boxes available at Nancy Zieman Productions ShopNZP.com

Note from Team NZP

 

When attaching elastic to skirt with a flatlock stitch on a serger, place elastic to skirt with right sides together, and place pins parallel to cut edge.

 

Note from Team NZP

 

When stitching elastic to skirt with a sewing machine, set sewing machine for a “wobble-stitch”: Choose a slight zigzag (2.0-2.5 length and .5 width). On the outside, this stitch will give the appearance of a straight stitch, while providing a slight amount of stretch to the seam! Or, choose a 4-thread overlock serger stitch. Now’s the perfect time to use a serger!

  • Stitch or serge seam with 1/4″ seam allowance, or use presser foot edge as a guide.
  • Stitch elastic to skirt top, stretching elastic as you sew.
  • Be sure to backstitch at seam beginning and ending – when stitching with a sewing machine.
