  1. Fold the remaining silk right sides together, lengthwise, and sew down the open edge. This will create a long tube. Turn right side out.

  3. Leave the back loose. This will be gathered on the elastic.
  4. Bring the end of the tube up, pleating into the waist. Pin.
  5. Sew around the top edge of the skirt, though all layers of fabric paying special attention to the pleats.
