So ppl wanted to kno how i made this skirt. so hers a tutorial. you need strech fabric. how much depends on you skirt length. for one like my first you need about 4 yards (give or take). this one only took about 2 and a quarter. step one: cut four even squares (the size of the squares will determine the length of your skirt) step 2; now fold the squares in half one way then the other and cut a slit from an end to the center of each one when unfolded the squares should look like this step 3; cut a waist band. just play with length untill it fits around your waist how you like it. keep in mind that you are going to add four seams in you waist makeing it tighter. also cut your waist band twice as wide as you want it plus seam alowance. i cut 8 inches my waist band is only 3.5 inches fold in half and sew where red line is now fold the othe way and sew a slant where the lines are line up the two seams you just made and sew on the lines sshown.
