3. Draw the skirt on the fabric using tailor’s chalk ( it will vanish when washing )

Cut the fabric using sharp scissors

 The Skirt ready to be sewn ( hand sewing or using sewing machine )

4. Overcast the sides of the skirt to prevent unravelling of the fabric in seam, or cut the edges with pinking shears scissors instead

5. Place the skirt wrong side up

Hem the bottom edge: Fold 1 cm and press. Fold again 1 cm, press and pin. Turn the skirt to the right side and sew the hem, making sure you stitch the innermost fold in the back side

6. Turn the skirt to the wrong side

Hem the waist: Fold the top edge 1 cm and press. Fold again 1,5 cm, press and pin. Turn the skirt to the right side and sew the waist hem, making sure you stitch the innermost fold in the back side

7. See the chart (step 2) “elastic” to check the length you need. Cut it and attach a safety pin to one end of the elastic

Insert and push the end of elastic with the safety pin through the waist hem

Use the safety pin to pull and guide the elastic through the waist. Fabric will gather as you go

Don’t let the other end of the elastic go through the leg hole: pin it in place

Pull until the safety pin comes out the other side of the waist hem

Pin the elastic in place and detach the safety pin. Secure the elastic with some stitches

8. Turn the Skirt to the wrong side, and fold it in half, right sides of fabric together

Align the sides of the skirt from waist untill bottom. Pin, baste ( optional ) and sew at 1cm from the edge

Press the seam open

9. Turn Skirt to the right side. Congrats! You're done!
