Hi, I'm love with J Crew's "Nico" skirt & was wondering if any of you had an idea of how it could be replicated? Or, if you know of a similar pattern? (I'm fairly new to sewing, but this looks like it could be a simple project.)

Since I am new to the forums I cannot post pictures, but here are some links to the skirt:

Can't tell by the photos, is the skirt sewn onto an elastic band?  If so, it will be easy to replicate, if you can find the right width and type elastic.  It looks like it is at least 2" wide, if not a bit wider.  Color of elastic may be limited unless you can find it online.  Skirt is a tube of fabric, hemmed at the bottom and probably serged (or otherwise clean finished at the top), sewn to the waistband.  If it is an elastic band, use a zig-zag stitch, mark the quarter marks on the elastic and skirt, then, stretching the elastic so the marks line up, stitch the skirt to the back of the elastic.

Ah thank you so much for replying!! So by tube, you mean that the fabric is the same width all the way through?
