Here are the instructions:
-1 yard fabric (44" wide)
-1 inch elastic
1. Cut two panels of fabric on the fold for a total measurement of 44" long each. Here is a quick width chart:
- 12 months: 10"
- 2T: 11"
- 3T: 12"
- 4T: 13"
- 5T: 14:
Cut your elastic to the width of the waist.
- 12 months: 17" long
- 2T: 18" long
- 3T: 20" long
- 4T: 22" long
- 5T: 24"long
Cut a third panel 4" wide x 44" long. (waist panel) Fold in half WST and press. Open panel and press one side of the waist band 1/4" towards the middle WST.
2. The two larger panels together at one of the side seams RST.
5. Thread your elastic through the casing securing at each end, I use a safety pin for this part. With RST match the sides of the skirt and pin in place all the way through the waist band. Sew together starting at the bottom and back stitch at the waist band.
Now you are done. You can add embellishments to the bottom or pockets to the front. I added small poms to the bottom of this skirt.
*if you don't want such a full look you can reduce the length of your panels.
