Fold down the waist of your lining to make a tube, similar to the hem but large enough to fit elastic. Insert your elastic like you did for the skirt ...
This is a super girly twirly skirt! Each layer is a full circle skirt with a handkerchief edge.
Step 1: Supplies
You'll need some stretchy fabric, about one yard per layer. I'm doing 6 layers, so I have 6 yards. If you want your skirt to be longer, you'll need more fabric. It is best if you choose a fabric that will not fray so you don't have to hem the layers. It will save time and your skirt will be much floatier!
If your fabric is see-through like mine (I'm using a stretchy mesh), you'll need about 1 yard of another kind of fabric to line the skirt. I'm using knit jersey (t-shirt fabric).
You'll also need elastic for the waistband, fabric scissors, sewing pins, a measuring tape, thread that matches your fabric, two large safety pins, and a pattern or a compass (or pencil and string) and paper to make your own pattern.
A sewing machine is optional, but VERY strongly recommended. It makes things a lot easier and is much faster than sewing by hand!
Also, stretchy fabric can be very difficult to sew with, so although the construction of this skirt is quite simple, it can be tricky to sew.
