Step 1 Making the skirt - explanation and photo

P1060940b_large

Cut a rectangle of textile of roughly 150 cm by 55 cm, for a european size 36.
Paint some flowers if wished.
1) Sew a side seam, so as to create one wide tube. I opted for French seams for neatness.
2) Sew a hem at the top and bottom of tube.
3) Wind elastic on the bobbin of your sewing machine.
4) Sew about 12 rounds of this elastic thread, roughly 1 cm apart. you may want to practice to get proper tighness.
