elastic waist skirts.... without the elastic?

Jul 14, 2010

yes... i realize my toes are in yet another picture... and my camera strap...
but LOOK at that face!!! classic!

so i have two little girls so its really important to be like REALLY extremely fair... one day my little blondie asked me to make her a cute skirt, she even picked the fabric out of my stash... it turned out super cute...

BUT somebody was a little bummed out because mommy only made one skirt for one kid... but mommy only had enough wide elastic for one tiny skirt... 

i had a stretchy stripe-y belt in my stash... wide enough and bright and colorful.

i chopped the ends off the belt... 

and whipped up this little beauty

there are SO many tutorials on this type of skirt the only change i really make is i like to double or triple the circumference of the skirt to make it extra yummy and twirly...

so go get those ugly, stretchy, unflattering belts ( that we know we shouldn't be wearing anyway)
and make a cute skirt!
