BUT if you follow these directions, I swear you won’t have as much trouble as me.
Supplies: Fabric (about two yards or twice the length of your waist measurement), matching thread, elastic (I used 1.5 in wide and about 1/3 the length of my waist measurement)
Cost: About $7.00
Time: An hour or so
I had this cool pink and embroidered 45″ wide fabric that I cut along the fold so I just had one big long rectangle. Then I hemmed the bottom of the fabric where the flowers are.
On the upper part I folded over about 6cm, encased the elastic, and stitched the waist band. I pinned the ends of the elastic to the openings on either end so I wouldn’t loose the elastic in the tunnel.
Then just stitch up the back seam and voila! Minimal cutting and sewing and you have a quick new skirt.
