We’re getting close to the end! Today is Day 5 of the Blythe SAL; we’ll be constructing our skirt tiers. The tiers can be a little bit tedious due to the gathering, but the time and attention to detail will pay off in the end! This is also a great time to add clear elastic to your bodice to help stabilize the waist seam.
Struggling with gathering? We have lots of helpful information over here.
- seam allowance is 1/2″ and is included on pattern pieces; be sure to take the full 1/2″, especially if you’re using a serger.
- if you’re using fabric such as cotton lycra, your gathers will likely be too bulky to drape nicely
- be sure to spread your gathers out evenly for the best finish

If you have questions about constructing your tiers, you are always welcome to post in our SAL group so we can help you! Be sure to check in each day during the SAL, and look for daily posts to enter our giveaways. We can’t wait to see what you create this week!
