Finishing: Sew the skirt together. Sew the front (underside) onto the skirt by lining up the 7th stitch with the skirt’s seam and working around.
Sew the back onto the skirt as well. Weave in all ends, except the ones on the crocheted part of the front. Thread these ends through the yarn over “holes” in the back and tie a bow.
