Knit Fabric ( I used less than a yard), Scissors, Sewing machine, Measuring Tape, 1″ wide elastic tape, sewing chalk and pins.
Measure round your waist also measure how long you want the skirt to be starting from your waist down to the length you want, then write down the numbers.
Putting right side together fold the fabric with the selvage edge together ( selvage edge is the self finished edge of a fabric. It keeps the fabric from fraying or unraveling ) Lay it flat on a table.
Divide your waist measurement by 2. Example (33 divide into 2 = 16.5)
Using the divided measurement ( according to my measurement I’m using 16.5″) measure adjacent from the selvage edge right from the fold and mark with a chalk.
Hint: I folded the fabric half way so I could use only the little I needed, saving the rest for some other project.
Using the skirt length measurement ( how long you want the skirt to be ), measure horizontally to the selvage edge.
Pin together and sew the length i.e ( the long side) with right side of the fabric together .
When sewing make sure you use the zigzag option on your machine, If you use the straight stitch it with keep snapping and cutting the thread.
Open up the stitch and iron it.
Bring out the elastic cut the length needed using your waist measurement. Cut out 1 and 1/2 ” from it. The will allow for a little stretch of the elastic.
Stitch the elastic together putting the raw edges on each other using the zigzag stitch.
Place the elastic on the right rise of the skirt. Stretch and pin the elastic and the fabric together. Sew the elastic on the fabric using the zigzag stitch.
Make sure you sew near the edge of the elastic. Sew it all around.
Turn the elastic to the wrong side and iron it. Pin it down all around.
Tack it down at 1 or 2 inch apart so the elastic can stay in place just like below.
Sew the bottom of the fabric, fold it on 1/2 ” and use the zig zag stitch to sew it all around.
Here is the final skirt.
