After this I cut the button holes from the waist ties:
I sewed them together at the smallest end.
Then I ironed interfacing in it that is specially made for waist bands.
See, there is a nice waist band ^^
Then I gathered the fabric of the skirt so it was the same measurement as the waist band. And then pinned the it to the skirt, and sewed it on.
All ready for sewing
After that it was time to put the zipper in place.
When that was all finished, I folded and ironed the waist band in place and sewed it secure to the skirt. Now this is always a little tricky, because this type of waist bands tends to get messy. But when you use enough pins all around, it should not be a problem.
And that was it.
There, all finished
Now there is one more problem, I have to do something with the left overs. I am thinking of using the bows from the bodice for hair clips, or some other accessory that needs a bow on it. There is also some left over fabric from the waist ties and of course the lace from the bodice. Maybe I just keep everything intact in case I want it to be a dress again. Who knows..
