Step 8: Sewing the Overskirt

Next we'll sew the 6 panels together for the overskirt. Take two panels and place them right sides together, lining up the edges. Sew a seam all along the long edge, from the narrow to the wide ends. Continue with another panel making sure to line up the panels right side together. Once the last panel is attached, sew it to the first panel.

You'll have a big "tube" with one narrow end and one wider end and a very full A-line! Go back and zig zag all the seamed edges.
