In today’s video we will be attaching the lining to the skirt and sewing a casing to fit in the elastic waistband.
The way Stephanie Brennan has chosen to attach the lining is super simple and the elastic casing will also close in all the raw edges, so there won’t be any stray threads poking out with wear or washing.
If you haven’t gotten your lining yet any lightweight woven cotton will work. We suggest this solid from Paintbrush Studio. It is extra drapey and very smooth to touch: https://shop.quiltaddictsanonymous.com/product/painters-palette-rice-paper-for-paintbrush-studio-fabrics/
For the Simple Pull-On Skirt you could even get a second cotton lawn print and make the skirt reversible for double the fun.
Make sure you refer to the FREE pattern when you are sewing the elastic casing and choosing your elastic. Our recommendations are different depending on if you are making the skirt for a child or adult.
Make sure you grab one or both of the skirt patterns we will be making in the Intro to Garment Sewing course.
