*Add at least 1/2 inch seam allowance to the finished measurements for the size you’ll need to cut out.
1. I sewed A and B up, right sides together (leaving a small opening) like a pillow and then turned them out and topstitched them.
2. I sandwiched the top ruffle (B) and neck ties (A) between the right sides together of the top and stitched it up like a pillow.
3. I sewed the trim on the bottom of the skirt (not visible in my picture.)
4. I ironed down the edges for a back and front piece of the waist and then made a little sandwich with the back of the waist band on the bottom, then the skirt, top, and waist ties and then the front of the waistband. Then I topstitched around the entire waistband-sandwich. (There are easier ways to do this, I’m sure, but I was winging it.)
I did the embroidery by hand. (I *wish* I had a machine! I’d embroider everything! LOL)
I drew out the design on paper, layed it under the fabric and traced it with a fabric marking pen. Then I embroidered it with synthetic embroidery floss (the shiny stuff.) The embroidery isn’t that great up close, but from a distance I think it turned out pretty nice.
