A note about the designer and our Heroine: One felt the other was too skinny with a too long neck. So the first one barked out some orders to the work room staff to draft up blousey, gathered, pleated things requiring neck scarves etc., etc., etc. adnauseum in a vain attempt to balance things out. The other one felt differently and let it be ever so diplomatically known. Obviously, our Heroine already had an inkling of what was to come in her years ahead fashion-wise. Know thyself and you'll always be well dressed.
Size Medium, 30" waist, 30" hem length.
9. Insert zipper in skirt side seam up and through waistband. Put the zipper tap stop just a smidge below the 5/8ths basting, about 1/8th".
12. Add zipper guard to zipper tape of skirt back so the button extension faces the front, and is 1/4" down from waistband upper seam.
17. Try skirt on and re-check hem markings. Adjust as needed.
18. Make the continuous bias. You need 6 1/2 yrds. of 2 1/2" wide continuous bias. The University of Kentucky instructions are below and very handy to have in your sewing notes for future reference. Thanks, Tuckers!
