Totally loving this season’s scarf print trend and it’s super easy to pull off. Check out this scarf print maxi skirt tutorial by my sister Ayo.
This is the fabric, bright tuquoise and burnt orange.
Ayo then used a hot iron to create accordian pleats
She pinned the facing to the raw edge of the garment, this formed the casing at the waist.
The facing was then stitched down at the top (raw edges) and folded over onto the wrong side of the fabric (inside).
A piece of non roll elastic the length required to go around the waist comfortably was cut and one end of the elastic was pinned to the fabric.
A hair pin was attached to the other end and used to thread the elastic through the casing.
The ends were stitched down
She then topstitched close to the fold at the upper edge
The side seams were stitched together and the skirt was hemmed and voila
