Time to finish my floral skirt that matches the Sewing Pattern Review contest blouse

I made a last minute design change, by adding a facing to accommodate wider elastic.

Hemming a bias flounce can be tricky. I used a two-step narrow hem. First, I pressed up and stitched the narrowest hem I could, slightly less than 1/4″. Then I turned the hem up a second time and stitched again about 1/4″ from the edge.

The lining stops just above the flounce. It’s attached at the waistband and floats free inside the skirt.
