On a Friday evening last year I decided I needed a new skirt for Saturday. I wasn’t up for lots of sewing and hadn’t quite mastered how to install a zip, therefore I thought to make a simple but effective casual skirt with an elastic waist band.
Taking only 15mins, I was extremely impressed with the result and have found a lot of use out of this skirt since.
A similar type of skirt tutorial can be found at: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/smocked-skirt-elastic
- 1.5m lightweight cotton fabric
- 2 inch wide black elastic (measured to approx. 1/2 waist measurement)
