This instructable will take you through the process of creating a pattern for your skirt, based on a waist measurement & length you want the skirt to be. It is very easy and once you create the pattern, you should be able to complete the skirt within 30 minutes! The materials needed are based on creating a skirt for a child. I created 4 skirts and the sizes varied as the girls were between a child's size 6-8. I purchased the fabric on sale, so each skirt's cost was about $6. The last step is a quick photo walk through on how to make the grey shirt with ribbon straps, which you can see in many of the photos. It is also fast and easy!
- 1 yard of fabric (I used Glitter Satin and it was beautiful) - it's best if your fabric is thicker, so you don't need to create a lining
- Elastic for waistband - I used a 1 inch knit elastic
- Ribbon 5/8 inch thick for the bottom of the skirt (or you can use bias tape)
-Ruler, fabric or regular
-Iron and ironing board
-Sewing supplies, sewing machine
