As you can see at the very top, I had to slit the fabric a bit to get it around the curves.
I then cut out the tails and liners for them. I sewed them together and pinned them to the back, from the center out. I stitched them on the bottom, then folded the red outer fabric over the bottom to make a clean edge on the front bottom and stitched straight across. This also saved me from having to tack down, by hand, the seam made by the tails.
|Please ignore the garbage bag behind the tails. It's fabric that hasn't found a home yet. Ah, fabric stashes.|
So, all done except for the grommets (groan).
The reason for the tails: My friend sword fights and wanted the effect of a skirt in the back without having to wear one and hitch it up. When she comes to pick it up, there will be modeling pictures.
