The clue's in the name :)
I made this in 2O minutes after school :)

  • Step 1

    First I measured around the fullest part of my hips, you need twice this measurement for the width of the fabric :)
    Then the length is up to you, but take around 10cm off of the length you want to make, because the hem will take up that much :)

  • Step 2

    To make the hem, make a strip of fabric as long as your other piece (hip measurement x2) by 20cm.
    Fold the edges over and press them.
    Then, if you fold is piece over long-ways it'll make the ideal hem for the bottom of your skirt.

  • Step 3

    Sew this hem to the bottom of the long fabric.

  • Step 4

    Fold the top of your "skirt" over and sew down the length, creating a tube at the top. Make sure the rough side is on the inside.

  • Step 5

    Using a safety pin, (pinned to the end of the elastic),
    pull the elastic through the skirt and once you get to the other end, tie it in a knot top make a loop.

  • Step 6

    With the skirt inside out (rough sides together), sew down the open edge.

  • Step 7

    Turn it out the right way around, and voila, your own simple skirt! :D
