I love this fabric. My Grandma bought it for me in Devon, about a yard, so I decided to make an elastic waist skirt.

    That’s super cute! I love skirts like that, I usually buy really long old lady ones from the op shop and chop them up to make mine.

      Haha :) No it’s dead easy! I just cut two rectangles (about 100cm~50cm) and the waist band. Mine was 4cm wide (multiple by two and add seam allowance). Cut one half your waist measurement, and another (for the elastic back) about twice the length. Assemble the pieces and insert elastic in the back so the waist band fits.
      Important note!! Make sure the waistband, when stretched out, fits over your hips! I forgot to check and had to insert a small placket on the side.
      Hope this makes sense! It’s very simple really but quite cute effect! :)
