Becky Joiner of Becky Blue J is a fellow teacher of mine at the Stitch Lab here in Austin. I’ve seen tons of students leave her sewing classes looking hip and adorable in their new dresses and skirts Becky so skillfully guides them through making. She has tons of experience and tips and tricks up her sleeve, and she’s just shared some of that handy knowledge on her blog.

I am fond of the waistband. Since I am so short-waisted and hippy, I will wear any skirt high and slim on the waist, and that means a faced waistband. The instructions in commercial patterns are typically horrid, but I have come across a rare educational treat on occasion. From my many waistband attempts I have developed a method that works best for me.
