Description

A simple elastic waisted skirt from a tiny dress. I spend hours unpicking the skirt from the bodice to get that extra inch of fabric. Because the lining was smaller than the outer fabric, I had to attach them separately. The stitching visible on the outside of the waistband is quite squiggly, but I’m very happy with it.

Material Notes

Old Indian cotton dress, elastic waist band
