Summer Scallop SkirtEasily crochet the edging into the fabric with the Sharp Crochet Hook!
I got the fabric for this skirt from Sisters and Quilters. They have a wonderful assortment of fabric!
Step 1: Sew fabric into a simple skirt- sew into a tube (one seam) that will fit over hips, zig-zag stitch all raw edges. Roll the top 1” and straight sew around-leave an opening to insert 1/2” wide elastic for the waistband, zig-zag elastic ends.
Step 2: With the fabric you want on the bottom, cut a 5” strip. Zig-zag stitch all around it. Sew to the bottom of top layer- leave a 1” seam allowance.
Step 3: Crochet
