This is the fifth and final post of my "How to Make a Pencil Skirt" series. For earlier segments see
Place your back piece and set it on top of your front piece (right sides facing). Sew both sides together using 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Do you see the stitching line on the bottom of the hem? I recently learned a great tip from Colette. They said instead of using a seam gauge to measure your hem, simply use your sewing machine to sew a basting line at the distance you want for the hem using the guide lines on your sewing machine to do the measuring. Then fold along the basting line, stitch, press, and remove the basting. This is so easy and precise!
Congratulations! Your skirt is finished!!!
