Use either a gathering foot or run a length of large stitches (by hand or machine) and gather by hand, inside the seam allowance of the skirt waist. If using a gathering foot, sew a test swatch to ensure you get the correct gauge. Gather the skirt to fit the bodice waist.

Take the now gathered skirt and fold RIGHT SIDES together.

Complete the dress by creating a rolled hem on the skirt. Use either a hem foot or manually turn the hem over approx. 5mm twice and secure using the machine or slip stitches by hand.

Press the garment to complete.
