Now I had my 2 nearly identical skirt shapes with 2 identically tatty top and bottom edges, what to do next? Well I decided that I would attempt to add a facing to the top edge of both of my skirts together. I was nervous about doing this because I hadn't actually attached one before I only had the experience of creating the pattern for one and cutting it out of the fabric but it was the way that I wanted to finish the top edge of my skirt so I decided to take a risk and give it ago.
These are the paper patterns that I made to create my facing. Then I cut them out of the calico.
This is how it finshed the top edge of my skirt and I am really pleased with the results.
