Skill Level: Beginner. I used a serger and a traditional sewing machine to sew each skirt. The gathers are made using a method of sewing baste stitches and pulling those threads to gather each fabric tier. I also describe an option for using your serger to create the gathered fabric very quickly, replacing the need to pull a thread. Remember: a serger is not required to sew this fun skirt.
