Today I went to Jo-Ann fabric without kids (which is dangerous) and I came out with a bag full of red line clearance material. One of them was $2.50 yard. I bought 1.5 yards of this cute pattern fabric, it just screamed 'SKIRT' to me.
I haven't made any skirts but I figured why not, and came up with this adorable elastic waist skirt for myself and Kara. I made it in about 20 minutes. I measured my waist, cut the elastic and then used double the fabric (example: a 30 inch waist would use 60 inches of material). Of course it doesn't have to be exact but just to give you a rough idea. I actually used 1 inch navy blue elastic and just zigzag sewed the fabric to the back of the elastic, I didn't even make a casing. It looks great, it fits great. Then I made Kara a tiny skirt with the same idea, measured her waist, used double the material and sewed it to the elastic.
