|up close lace chiffon and waistband|
I got my fabric from Wholeport. The pink rose chiffon lace from HERE and the pink satin from HERE. The wide elastic waistband I got from Ruffle Fabric
Below I have the basic instructions for those of you that already know how to sew:
|under skirt in pink satin|
1. Cut your pieces of fabric as directed above
2. Sew your trapezoid pieces together. Hem the bottom and top. I used my serger
3. Cut your elastic the size you need it. Sew it together
4. Take all 3 pieces (the over skirt, underskirt, and waistband) and layer them with the underskirt on the bottom with seams on the inside, then the over skirt, and finally the waistband with the right side on facing the over skirt. You will have all 3 layers even and layered on top of each other so that you can sew them all together at 1 time.
PLEASE NOTE: These instructions will work great for any size. I made 3 skirts, a 12 month size, 4t size, and girls 8. They worked across the board. I am excited to make me one now! I haven't decided if I want the overlay to be as full on me as it is on the girls. hmm So hard to make a decision!
