I started by detaching the top from the dress bottom and cut just below the elastic on the top.
I folded the top over to make the casing for a waistband and to shorten the skirt to an appropriate length.
I pinned the fabric down when I had a consistent spacing all along the top.
I just eyeballed this measurement, but if you want, you can use a hem gauge.
I sewed around the waistband leaving enough room for my elastic and also leaving a small opening for me to thread my elastic.
I got out my elastic, measured it around my waist and cut the length I needed.
I used a safety pin to help me thread the elastic through my skirt waistband.
This step probably takes the longest, and really, it doesn't take that long!
One the elastic is in place, sew your elastic together and then stitch the hole closed that you left open in your waistband.
The skirt literally took me 10 minutes from start to finish!
Check out that scarf.
Does it look familiar?
It was the infinity scarf that I showed you on Wednesday that I made from a twin sheet.
