Step 4: Drape and sew skirt.

  1. Fold the remaining silk right sides together, lengthwise, and sew down the open edge. This will create a long tube. Turn right side out.
  2. With the seam hidden on the inside, begin wrapping the tube of silk around the hips of the dress form.
  3. Leave the back loose. This will be gathered on the elastic.
  4. Bring the end of the tube up, pleating into the waist. Pin.
  5. Sew around the top edge of the skirt, though all layers of fabric paying special attention to the pleats.
Beautiful! Great job.
