I love this fabric and I had to make a skirt using it. It screamed summer skirt! My daughter probably could use one. Hmmm….I made it for her and then decided that I have to make another one for myself. It is just such great fabric. The fabric is by Luke for Moda fabrics and we have it in the shop. There are a lot of different ways to make this in terms of seam finishes. This one I used my serger on. The next one I may decide to do french seams. When it comes to doing that curved hemline, there are a lot of ways to help make it smoother. One way is to use a long stitch and stitch about 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric. Then, you draw it up like a gathering stitch so that the edge is slightly and I mean slightly gathered. Then you roll it under 1/4 inch, and then 1/4 inch again, and it’s perfectly flat. Well not flat from the wrong side but it should be from the right side. It should look really good with a finish like that.
