Supplies, you will also need a pen
Tread your sewing machine
Cutting the fabric. Mark where you need to cut it
The length of the fabric should go around your waist twice. The width should be the length of where you want it on your legs. Add an inch for a hem. Then add the length of your elastic and make sure
it can fold over the elastic will half an inch so you have room to sew it.
Pin and hem the bottom
Pin the pocket for the elastic and sew the edge
Sew until you get a 1/3 of the way and stop. Skip 5 inches and then start sewing again.
The elastic should go around your waist with a little extra.
Start putting your elastic through
When you get to the opening pull it without losing the other end
Sew the opening shut
Now the hard part. You elastic will be shorter than your fabric so you have to bunch the fabric to get the other end
Pull them together so they bunch
Put it inside out and pin it so it fits for who ever you are making it for
Sew it and back stitch the elastic really good
Cut off extra
A cute little skirt!
