When I first finished this skirt I was having trouble matching this skirt, but now I have several pieces to match in mind.
Anyways, this was just one really long maxi dress. Take a look at the pictures below:
Step 1: I used a matching piece of fabric for the top. I wanted to leave the print on the bottom since it was already hemmed!
Step 2: I sewed and trimmed the side of the top piece to close it up.
Step 3: It was time to connect the top piece and the bottom piece!
Step 4: Next, elastic was put in. First I measured the width of my waistband. Pin around a piece of the elastic to get your ideal width. If it's too wide, the fabric will bunch up. If it's too thin, the elastic will bend and twist.
Once I sewed all around, I used a safety pin to insert the elastic all around the waistband.
It will look like this once you're done!
Step 5: Now onto the sewing machine to sew the elastic shut.
Something like this...It was late. I could've sewn it better LOL.
Afterwards, I just closed up the remaining part of the waistband and I was done!
