Brumby Sewalong: Center Front (Version 1 & 2) and Side Seams (all)

Next up on our Brumby skirts are some quick seams. If you’re including a center front seam on your skirt, we’ll start there, and then tackle the side seams. As well as a quick prep for the zipper. Let’s get to it, this is an easy one!

Center Front Seam
