If you've been following along, you likely have your bodice together. If not, no worries, you can get to the post from here:
On that page you'll also find links to the post about altering and choosing a size for this dress. If you are ready to move on to the skirt, you are in the right place!
First, begin by sewing the right and left back skirt pieces together, then the right and left front skirt pieces. Do not press these seams open. You'll need them flat. Do seam finish. Now you're ready to add the pockets to the skirt. My original was assembled with a more vintage method (above) in mind, but Simplicity's method does the job, it's just a bit tricky.
POCKETSWith right sides together, sew the pockets to the skirt front side seam between the symbols. Clip into the seam allowance perpendicular to the end of your stitching.
Slip the pocket facing under the skirt, right pocket sides together.

Have a great sewing day!
