Animazing Sew-A-Long Day 2
I hope you’re having a terrific Tuesday! Did you pick out your fabrics and prep your Animazing pattern yesterday? If not, there’s still time to do it!
Today we are going to cut our fabrics and construct our straps. If you are going to have an elastic waistband on the back of your skirt, I have provided the cut chart below. Be sure to cut the length of your waistband according to the Animazing pattern. For the skirt, cut two skirt pieces according to the front skirt measurements in the cut chart. You will also need two pieces of ½” elastic. Also, if you are doing tie back straps you will only need to cut one strap loop instead of two.
I decided to make a small 1 inch ruffle at the hem of my skirt because I love the look, and I am doing ruffles on everything I can while my daughter is young. It will look like this (excuse the wrinkles...I just got the skirt out of the washer):
If you want to do this as well, cut your skirt length a half inch shorter than it says to in the cut chart. Then, cut four ruffle strips 2.5 inches long and the same width as your skirt.
Tomorrow we will put the face on and construct our waistband.
Don’t forget to post one progress photo and one final photo in the albums in the facebook group to be eligible to win a pack of 5 patterns!
