Here's the supplies...
1 yard of material
3/4 in. or 1 in. elastic
These directions will make a skirt that will fit probably a Small to Medium size. For large sizes, you will need a little more material. For my skirt, I used a yard of material or 36 inches, if your measurements at the widest part of your hips is more than 36 inches or close to, you will need more material. Start by cutting the material in half.
Lay the material wrong sides together.
Measure the width and divide by 3. Multiple that by 2, to figure out 2/3 of the material. My calculations are below...
Measure along the top 1/3, for me that was 12 inches and mark with a fabric marker. Then measure along the bottom 2/3, for me that was 24 inches and mark with a fabric marker.
Using a straight edge, connect the two marks. I just drew a line with my fabric marker since it disappears after a few minutes.
Next cut through both pieces of material down the line.
Next sew all four pieces together along the long edges. I didn't even pin mine, I just sewed them up.
Here's the finished skirt, all ready for me to wear this Spring!!
