Recommended fabrics: lightweight silk or cotton fabrics.

When sewing the garment, pay attention to notches- they must coincide.
1. Front Part - 2 pieces
2. Back Part - 2 pieces
3. Flounce - 2 pieces
1. Sew side seams and inseams, matching Front and Back parts face-to-face. Serge allowances. Press seams open.
2. Insert pants’ halves one into another. Sew center back seam, leaving an opening above waistline at back (for inserting elastic).
3. Turn under allowance for waist tunnel, press. Turn under raw edge and topstitch at 0.1 ?m (1/16”) from the fold, to form a tunnel. Insert elastic through the tunnel, length of elastic should be equal to your waist girth.
4. Sew each Flounce’s short ends together, press seams open. Machine-baste at one allowance of each Flounce, pull threads to make gathers, so that gathered edge of Flounce is equal in length to the bottom edge of pants. Baste Flounces to pants, stitch together. Serge seam allowances. Serge allowances at bottom of Flounce, press to the wrong side, topstitch. Apply eyelet trim tape underneath the bottom edge of Flounce, baste and edgestitch.
