The only time consuming part of this tutorial is the hem. Even with a teeny-tiny skirt for a 3-year-old, the hem on a circle skirt can take some time, and I knew Moops wouldn't have the patience to wait.
So I decided to line the skirt, attaching the lining at the hem first.
I cut the lining out just as I did the main fabric and then laid them right sides together and pinned at the hem:
I sewed around the hem with a 3/8" seam allowance and then trimmed that back to about 1/8" while Moopser did some of her own work.
Next you need to turn the skirt right side out and press:
Then baste the layers together at the waistband:
And finish the skirt as per Dana's instructions in her tutorial.
See the nice crisp hem with no measuring, handstitching, double turns or rolled hems??
The skirt was ready in less than an hour and then Moopsy got her turn in front of the camera!
