Tie them in the back in a bow, and you get a nice clean finish in the front.
I'm wearing a chiffon petticoat in these photos, and I also added a lining to the skirt.
To add a lining to this skirt, it's a good idea to fold in the pleats on the pattern tissue before cutting. That way, you don't have to deal with the bulk of the pleats on the lining. Just overlap the tissue so the pleat lines meet and pin in place.
I stitched a cute lavender and white lace trim to the lining.
In true Gertie fashion, I had to buy special shoes for the outfit. These purple suede heels are a perfect match for the sateen.
purple pom pom skirt and the purple roses jersey I'm making the wrap top in for the sew-along. Gosh, I'm so practical!
