Plain seam must be trimmed and then stitched to prevent wrinkles seen on the right side. The two pieces of materials to be joined are placed together with wrong sides facing. Work a row of stitching 1/8 outside the seam line towards the raw edges. After stitching, trim the seam allowances to less than 1/8. Press the seam and turn the work so that the right sides are together.
The silhouette can be narrow, flared or bouffant; even straight skirts can vary from extremely tight and narrow at the hem to slightly A-lined. The length of a skirt is always important.
