      Thanks! I would like to make one in white and light blue… or white and pink… How did you make the waistband?

      those are pretty colors!

      for the waistband length measure your waistline and add 3 inches

      the width may vary depending on your style, but the width i used is about 3 inches which includes seam allowance

      fold lengthwise and sew the tips together

      pin the waistband from the inside right side against wrong side all the way to the end then sew

      fold the waistband and tuck the seam allowance to the edge, pin and sew

      the end part is a bit tricky since you have about an inch for allowance, just sew them together

      if this is a bit confusing for you why don’t you try this http://clothing-design.suite101.com/article.cfm/how_to_make_a_skirt_pattern
