    Step 2

    For this skirt you will need elastic, fabric, and you're sewing machine/needle and thread. Obviously. First off is fabric. The poofyness of your skirt results from how long your fabric is to begin with. Mine could wrap around me once and a half or so. Cut out how ever much fabric you think is good, depending on how ruffly you want the top to be, and set it on an ironing table/surface whatever. Then take your iron and fold down the edge of the fabric a tiny bit and iron. Then fold the fabric over again. This is gonna be the casing for your elastic waistband. Iron it and pin.

    Pop your copy of "Pretty. Odd." in to the cd player for some great sewing tunes
    Shake your bum to Nine in the Afternoon while ironing.
    Sing loudly so the neighbors can hear.

    Okay, back to business. Sew your casing. At the end of the top, cute out a little square. This will help when feeding your elastic through. Pin the skirt ends together starting fron UNDER!!!! the waistband casing. And sew.
