How to make my Chalk Lines Skirt

It’s not the quickest sewing project, since you have to sew each seam twice – once to put in the piping and again to actually make the seam – but it’s worth the extra effort. These are the pattern pieces: To add piping to a seam, first sew the piping to one side, placing it on the right side of the fabric with the decorative bit facing in. Sew along the edge of the raised part – sewing on the raised part looks fine, and sewing too far back does not, so error on the side of keeping too close. Next, pin the second piece of fabric in place with the right sides together. First sew together the bottom and middle pieces of the side panel. To add the pockets, sew the piping to the top of the pocket, then add the top of the lining. fold the lining back and top stitch so this edge lies flat. To add an exposed zipper, finish the edges of the fabric so they won’t unravel by running a zigzag stitch along the edge.
