SLPco Lucy Sew-A-Long Day 3

Howdy Sew-A-Long Friends!

We are on Day 3 and that means making and adding the skirt … oh, and the pockets!

So, this part is even easier than Day 2’s bodice sew.

First, you will grab your skirt fabric and cut it to the correct size. These are just rectangle pieces, so no pattern pieces necessary. One of the things I love most about SLPco patterns is that the cutting chart for non-pattern pieces are on the bodice pattern pieces! It’s a huge time saver for me. You will want to decide whether you will be using the tunic or dress version and cut accordingly.

Now that you have it cut out, it’s time to sew it together. Go ahead and hem so that you are ready for the pockets!

In SLPco style, you have a couple of options for pockets. You can either do square pockets or rounded pockets. I chose to do square pockets for my tunic as they are a little smaller, but those rounded pockets are just perfection! It would be easiest to attached the pockets now while the skirt is flat instead of gathered, but if you forgot, you can add them whenever!

{I know there are no pockets on my completed tunic … my sewing machine broke just as I was sewing the pockets together! Ack!}

 

Now that the pocket are on, it is time to gather and attach the skirt to the bodice! If you are doing a woven bodice, you’ll want to add the placket. Omit the placket if doing a knit bodice.

That’s it for today! Come on by the fan group and add your skirt pics to the Day 3 album!
