Sew crappy polyester organza over strips of tissue or tracing paper! It works like a charm and my seams were perfect. Apparently other students (using the industrials) got their projects swallowed by the machine a few times and had to start over.
We then had to drape the organza over the base skirt. Here is what I have so far. It's one big hot mess! I was going to do a bubble hem, but I haphazardly cut the overlay too short. I think I'm going to do a hand rolled hem on everything, which will take forever.
My skirt is gross and I just hope I can get a good grade on it just for all the work I put into it.
Thanks to Levanah, Allie, and dikisdersi for becoming my newest followers! You gals are great!
