How To Add A Faux Button Placket To A Skirt

"To make your skirts special and unique, learn how to add a faux button placket to any skirt pattern! It’s only decorative so the placket will never pop open! I usually stick to neutrals for my closet, but this skirt is bringing me all sorts of happiness and sunshine right now. I used one of my free skirt patterns to make this skirt, but I added a faux button placket for an extra special detail. The faux button placket adds such a fun look to the front of the skirt, but it’s not as hard to sew as a real button placket and it will never accidentally pop open when you move and sit."
