What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sewing with knits is not that hard, just do it! This went together so fast, even with basting. I basted the waist band together before I connected it to the skirt, I think this helped a lot keeping things together. Then basted the skirt to the waist then finished it on my overlocker. The hem was a quick and easy overlock then turn up and zigzag, wasn't really sure I would like it but this really was a trial run so quick and easy was the aim. After I did it I thought it looked ok, I'll probably use this finish again (but match the thread a little better).

I am jealous of your hem! I messed mine up but hope no-one will notice when I'm wearing the skirt.

the hem looks so professional. I don't have an overlocker or a serger but there is a sewing studio close by that has you recommend I save that step and use the fancy machine?
