This is an excellent question Birthoween.  First, I can not emphasize how important it is to get super-stretchy fabric.  Remember you will be pulling this over your hips to get it on.  Second, I would recommend a slightly larger waistband.  It will still be fitted to your waist but  maybe to your "low waist." So, meausre your waist for the waistband and then ADD an inch.  The length should be fine.  Don't worry, your butt will be covered and I think you will find this a very flattering skirt.  Have fun!

Thank you so much for this tutorial!
This is my first post on Crafters but I've been lurking on your beautiful work for hours and hours, I just couldn't get enough of it!
Yesterday I just went through my stash and decided i needed to have this skirt!
I slightly modified it to have a pointy shaped hem, I did a wider waistband that can be fold in half or act as a boobtube, and I used the body of and old T-shirt attached to the waistband to line the finished skirt.

Unfortunately, the material is less strtchy than I thought, as the skirt is heavy now, I'll have to weave a ribbon in the waitband to act as a belt and prevent it from slipping, but i like it Smiley

Pictures are all behind the links...

hm... i was just wondering, even though this is WAY late, why is it better to do a slit than a circle?

Maybe just to really simplify the process Huh (Seems a whole lot easier to me to make a slit than stuff around doing a circle - maybe I'm just super lazy today)
