This is how to make pick-ups on a skirt. It's a technique used often on wedding dresses and I couldn't find a good how-to. I did some research and I somewhat figured it out. I've taught myself how to sew, so if I used improper terminology or techniques that is why.
skirt material (I used poly/cotton broadcloth), safety pins, elastic cord, elastic waistband.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
