Birth of a 1940s cover up skirt for Miss 2 (more adventures with my Singer featherweight)

“What do you get when you have a Singer 221, a 50 cent remnant of crisp seersucker, a vintage fashion loving mummy and a toddler who loves the paddle pool…?”

Above: Using the gathering foot

Waistband basted to skirt, gathers adjusted….

Pinning the waistband over the gathers 

Stitching the waistband 

The hem, before being blind stitched by hand. Adjustable hemmer was used for a neat finish on the edges before folding up.

Buttons??? I am leaning towards the blue ducks. 

Note: pressing between each step.
