what to face a denim skirt with at the waist, No band.

denise | Posted in General Sewing Info on

i like to line my skirts but this one for my daughter is a lovley soft denim,.

Any suggestions for turning under the waist area, as i usually use my lining as facing.

If i lined the skirt it would not have the movement in it that the denim has.


any ideas please

    Try facing it with wide grosgrain ribbon

    Denim Facing

    Hello Denise.

    I would face the skirt with the denim that you are using, that way the panels are matching rather than having a contrast panel facing the original denim, If you have a contrast panel as a facing you may see the contrast peaking up above the outer denim slightly. The denim facing would be lightly fused and attached to the lining giving the garment a professional finish.

    I hope that this helps you.

    Good luck in your project and happy sewing.
