This is a skirt for times when you want to cover your legs, but still be able to feel a breeze. It can be worn to a party, a fair, or just around the house. It’s a very simple skirt that can be made and modified in a hurry.
type: cotton material is recommended
(preferably not a stretchy material)
amount: measure around where you want the skirt waistline to be, add 4", and multiply by 2. The width of the fabric will be the length of your skirt (waist to hem)
I.e. waist is 32": 32" + 4" = 36."
36″ × 2 = 72" (two yards)
notions: thread, a drawstring that fits around your waist plus 12", or a piece of elastic that stretches comfortably around your waist.
