Onto my latest project:


A super easy to make elastic waist skirt with a sash.  For my youngest daughter.  This skirt is very similar to a tutorial I have on the paper bag waist skirt.  The only difference is the waist line.  The skirt requires 1 yard of 60″ width fabric or 1 1/2 yards of 44-45″ width fabric.   Fabric used is polyester peachskin but you can use almost any fabric cotton, knit, shantung, silk etc.

The only adjustment that I made was at the skirt waist.  It is folded over 1/4″ and then 1″.  Sew close the edge and insert elastic like the following tutorial.


Enjoy & Happy Sewing!!! 😀
