How to make the faux-wrap jeans Skirt
Here is the detailed instruction of the skirt in the pattern store there.
The skirt can be done in two different fabric to enhance the assymetry.
Jeans/denim is great. the fabric needs some structure. It doesn’t need to be lined.
First cut all the pieces and interface the back & front facing, the back yoke and the small triangle piece.
Attach the back yoke to the back skirt
Inside view when it is done. Note that we have interfaced the positioning of the skirt.
The back is done
Now the front which is more difficult
Sew the left and right front together. The seam line will be the bottom of the pleat
Now fold the pleat and close it at the top on the wrong side. When you turn it inside out, that what you should see.
the triangle in place : That piece had been interfaced and stitched on one side on its wrong side and turned inside out.
View from inside. one side has been stitched with the back.
Prepare the zip placement with interfacing before stitching the other side with the back
Stitch an invisible zip where the interfacing straps are on the left side at back and front.
the sides are now all done.
the front and back facings have been stitched ( make sure that the opening is on the left side of the garment.
Cut the side to be stitched on the zip. We do that for invisible zips because the facing is following the “rolled in” effect of the zip and is thus shorter that the garment
Stitch first along the zip and then on the top edge. the bottom of the facing has been overlocked or bordered with biais for neat finishing.
Insert 2 strap on the sides for easy hanging in the wardrobe.
The faux-wrap jeans skirt is finished
