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.
