5. Turn your skirt right side out, but keep the lining inside out. Place lining in skirt and line up along top edge.
6. Change your machine settings to a very long straight stitch for basting.
7. Stitch along the top edge of skirt with a 1/4" seam. This will hold the skirt and lining together while you hem the skirt.
8. Next you'll work on the bottom hem.
9. Hem the silky lining of the skirt by ironing it 1/4 inch up and then folding it 1/4 inch above the ironed edge. Stitch to create hem.
10. Take your 1 inch ribbon. Fold it over and iron to keep closed. This will become a make-shift bias tape. Sew along bottom hem of skirt. (you may want to tuck lining far towards the top of the skirt so it doesn't get caught in the sewing). Repeat this step along top seam of skirt at waistline.
11. Use your iron to create pleats in your ribbon (at full width). Create an even number of pleats because we will be adding one more when we finish the ribbon detail and you want to end up with an odd number.
12. Pin your pleated ribbon to the bottom right edge of your skirt, starting 3 inches from your skirt's side seam. Measure 1 inch up from the bottom bias tape edge all the way around and pin in place.
13. When you reach all the way around, cut your ribbon so that there is 2 inches beyond where the unfinished ribbon edges should meet. Then create a pleat by folding the unfinished edge under, slightly overlapping the first pleat's raw edge.
14. Pin in place, covering both raw edges. Sew around top edge of ribbon. Repeat along bottom edge of ribbon.
15. Finish top of skirt by folding down skirt top (it was edged with folded over ribbon) 1 inch and sewing along edge, leaving 1 inch open. Run 1/4 inch elastic through. Close opening.
16. Remove buttons from jacket front. Use needle and thread to hand sew three buttons along front right bottom edge of skirt.
