I just made this high waisted skirt yesterday, and I gotta say that i'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Here's what I used:
Three 3XL t-shirts (I bought mine at Michaels)
Wide non-rolling elastic waistband
Here's a picture of what I modeled my skirt after:
One of the HUGE 3XL shirts that was used for the skirt:
Tracing the lining of the skirt that the ruffles will be sewn onto:
One of the long strips used for the ruffles: (6inches wide)
Sewing the ruffles onto the skirt: (I just eyeballed the pleats!)
Attaching the casing for the waistband and then placing the elastic waistband inside: (the elastic waistband is 1.5inches wide)
And the finished product!
I'll post pics of myself wearing this skirt soon! The skirt sits right at my waist and looks great with a thick belt
(Just like the pic!)
I hope you guys like it! I had alot of fun making it!
