So, here it is, Vogue 8425....
I love the high waist and wanted to keep it unwrinkled and nice-looking, therefore I've decided to add a sturdier fusible (fusibles that I buy here in notion shops don't have a name or code or whatever, therefore you've got a photo below) and boning (for that I've added a center seam to the facing instead of cutting it on the fold).
I chose that type of boning that you can sew through, because it is practical, flexible, it keeps its shape and it doesn't need any end treatment, because it doesn't poke.
I've sewn the boning to the seam allowances with a wide zigzag
Then topstitched the seam allowances closed to one side
This is how it looks from the right side
I added lace at the lining hem, to make it look nicer. And in case the lining peaks, at least you have some nice sexy lace to show :)
And I've secured the hem of the lining to the hem of the skirt with finger-crocheted thread
And this is the facing stitched to the invisible zipper
To sew an invisible zipper and to cleanly join the facing to the zipper, a great tutorial by Jinjer Markley on Kathleen Fasanella's site: part 1 and part 2 of the tutorial
Since I've read this tutorial (two years ago), I've only used this method!
For more details, read my PR review of the pattern.
