Measure the person you are making the skirt from waist to desired length.
Supplies you will need
you will need to get the length of your skirt plus 2 inches for hemming
making sure that both ends of your skirt are cut straight.
Then turn right sides together or inside out.
Sew open side together with about 1/2" seam allowance
Then hem the bottom of the skirt by folding the fabric twice about a 1/4" twice and use straight stitch.
Wind your bobbin cause you run out half way through hemming the bottom of the skirt :)
Get distracted by your cute 3 year old asking why you are taking pictures of your sewing stuff and not him. Take one of him and move on :)
Then fold over the top a 1/4" then the width of the elastic. Top stitch with a straight stitch.
Make sure you leave a gap to thread the elastic.
Use a safety pin on one end of the elastic to thread it.
Stitch the ends of the elastic together with a zig zag stitch forward and back a few times to make sure it is secure.
Top stitch the gap.
Sew on any tags or embellishments.
Then try it on and enjoy it!
