Easy Project, Great Results

I finished the McCall’s 4876 skirt today and got to wear it out ballroom dancing. The flounces on the skirt were just perfect for whirling and twirling across the dance floor! This will also double as a work outfit.

This skirt consist of eight gores and eight flounces inserted in the skirt seams. I’ve made this before in a woven. It was a doozy since I interlined that skirt and it was my first time using a serger.

This time, I used gray stretch polyester jersey. I used black thread for a rolled hem for the flounces to create a nice contrast.

Here’s where I attached each flounce to each gore.

I also opted to omit the facing for the waist. Instead I made a casing and inserted 1/2″ elastic to fit the skirt right on my waist.

Finished product with Burda 05-2009-103A top.
