To determine the width of your fabric measure the waist of whomever you are making the skirt for, then double it. (My 5 year old has a 21 inch waist, so I cut 42 inches for the width).
To determine the length, measure where you’d like it to end, then add 1 1/2 inches. (I cut 15 inches for my 5 year old).
Your elastic needs to be 1 inch bigger than the actual waist size (so I cut 22 inches for my 5 year old). Pretty easy right?Once you have determined the width & length, it’s time to cut!
- Place right sides of your fabric together & sew a 1/4 inch seam all the way down.
- Iron open your seam so it lays nice & flat.
Flip right side out and iron over 1/4 inch (you can do this on both ends, since they will both eventually need this).
- For the top, fold over again & press (use your elastic as your guide to see the width of the fold over). I added 1/4 inch on each side of the elastic, since I knew I would be making a seam above & below it.
- Now make a seam on the top & bottom of the part that you just rolled over. Make sure you leave a 2 inch opening to be able to slide the elastic through.
