Did you know that you can make this skirt in adult women’s size too? You can find that tutorial here.
Pin your rectangles together at the side seams, right sides together. Be very careful to match up the stripes. I put pins every 2″ or so to ensure nothing slips around while stitching. Stitch the side seams and finish the raw edge with a serger or zigzag stitch.
Finish the raw edge at the top of the skirt with a serger or zigzag stitch (not shown). Sew two rows of basting (long) stitches across the top. These will gather the top of the skirt to fit the waist. I like to do the front and the back separately because this reduce the chance of the threads snapping.Gather the top of the skirt to fit the waistband by pulling on the bobbin threads.
Pin the waistband carefully in place. It will be very obvious with stripes if your waistband is not on straight so use lots of pins and ensure it is even.
