On Friday I started to construct my toile for my Funnelweb Skirt.
I inserted the darts.
Then I sewed part way up the centre back seam; leaving the gap for the zip.
I preferred the effect that the interfacing had on the hem of the skirt so this is the method that I will use in my final garment.
Here I sampled different ways that I could attach the ribbon that will attach the chain onto the skirt.
This is the way that I will be attaching the ribbon to my skirt because I prefer the way that the ribbon lies and I believe that it looks neater.
I will also attach jump rings to the ribbon which will make it easier the attach the chain.
I then marked off where I want to attach the chain.
I then made up my waistband.
I attached ribbon at the points where I want to attach the chain. I ended up attaching the ribbon to the skirt rather than the waistband as it is easier overall.
The next step is to insert the zip.
I am really pleased with the shape of the skirt and feel that it is very flattering to the figure.
