Izzy & Ivy Sew Along- The Evie Skirt- Day Three

Yesterday we finished up the stripwork portion of the Evie skirt and today we will be working on the waistband. A really fast sew today compared to sewing up all of those strips of fabric! But they are SO worth it in the end. If you are just now joining us, head over to Day 1 and Day 2’s posts to get caught up! We have some extra days built in, so you can still make it!

Today you will take the 6 pieces you have leftover: 4 strips for the waistband and 2 wider strips for the sash pieces.   I realize it’s going to drive some people nuts that I used different fabric in yesterday’s tutorial. I didn’t originally plan to do a tutorial on how to add the trim. It just means I now have TWO cute skirts for my girlie. Don’t be jealous.. 🙂

Using the instructions from your pattern in section A, step J, sew your sash pieces.

Now take your 2 of your 4 waistband pieces, pin them RST (right sides together) down the long side, and sew. Repeat with the remaining 2 pieces. I’m using a 1/2″ seam allowance just like the original pattern tutorial.
