Hello everyone, this is my first post. I hope you can all see the picture. Here's a skirt I just made. It was very easy.
http://img50.exs.cx/img50/8942/skirt.jpg

First, I cutted the outline of an old skirt, in a stretchy fabric, but cutted it longer than the final desired lenght (knee lenght). Then, I traced vertical lines, about every 2 inches. I sewed thin elastics on the wrong side of fabric, where I had traced the lines (remember you have to stretch the fabric and the elastic as you sew. I left about 3 inches with no elastic on top, I think it looks prettier. After that, I sewed the sides. Then I made a basic seam on the top and bottom. Very easy, it took only about 2 hours. I think you could wear it also as a tub top.


OK... I hope it works now... Thanks to a besoin de parler (parles-tu franais?), I guess geocities just sucks... Thank you all for your help! As I said earlier, this is my first post... And to CyndiCat the final skirt is not very long, I would say about mid thighs, but I cutted the fabric almost twice that lenght. Almost. Good luck everyone, I hope you can all see the picture now!

Well yes the material was see through, because it's white I guess, so that's why I used two layers of fabric and it's not see through anymore  Wink Thanks for your comments. I think the skirt is very flattering, even if my legs aren't that pretty Smiley

That is beautiful and don't worry about your legs (they look a lot better than mine!)  How much longer than the desired length did you cut the fabric?

I can see the picture now, and it's really cute. I never ever in a million years would have thought to try an effect like that, but now I want to use the elastic technique on a top. All thanks to you!!
