Animazing Sew-A-Long Day 4
Happy Thursday! If you are on track with the sew along, today is your final day. If not, no worries because tomorrow is a catch up day!
Are you loving your elastic waistband? Yesterday I made 6 Animazings, and they are so quick when I use elastic instead of buttons!
Today your only task is to sew up the skirt. If you are not adding a ruffle hem, go ahead and follow the pattern to the end. If you are doing a ruffle hem, you will want to place your ruffle strips right sides together and sew along the short side. Repeat until all four strips are connected in a loop.
Next, fold your strip in half, bringing the bottom of the strip to meet the top, wrong sides together. Press. Sew a gathering stitch around the top of the ruffle strip and gather to be the same size as your skirt piece. Attach and topstitch. Now follow the pattern to the end!
