|Really? An elastic waistband, UO? |
It's like you're not even trying.
So I took this skirt, which would have cost me $40 and made it for $3. Literally $3.
It wasn't even hard. If you have a basic knowledge of sewing and own a sewing machine, you can easily whip one of these off in an afternoon.
You just take a large or XL men's shirt, depending on your size and how full of a skirt you want. I used an XL shirt and I ended up with a pretty full skirt.
Then you cut straight across the shirt from armpit to armpit (you may have to remove pockets). The bottom part will be the skirt.
Use some of the rest of the shirt to make a waistband and sew one of the existing buttons and buttonholes to the waistband so you don't have to make a new buttonhole (it truly is the worst part of sewing).
Then, gather the skirt as much as you need to and sew it to the waistband and you are done!
Cheapest skirt I have ever owned. The best.
