I folded, pressed and sewed the belt loop ties.
The interfaced waistband pieces got sewn together and the seams pressed open. Lots of work for my iron!
Belt loop ties were pinned in place.....
....then the right sides of the waistband was pinned to the right side of the gathered skirt. Remember to match your seams and use lots of pins! I only had one rogue gather that I needed to pick out and correct.
YEA!! It is looking like a skirt for sure now! Stay tuned.....tomorrow is the zipper!!
