Print out the pattern pieces for the skirt. There are three tiers.
Cut out the pattern pieces from the fabric. Also cut 2x extra tiers 3″- 8 cm wide and the same length as the top tier.
Assemble the skirt as described in the pattern. You can choose to add or omit pockets.
Place the 2 extra 3″- 8 cm wide tiers right sides together and sew the short sides. Next, fold this strip in half, wrong sides together.
Sew the double-folded tier all around to the top of the skirt. Leave a small piece open. This is where we will pull the elastic through.
Cut a piece of elastic as long as the waist of the model (+ seam allowance). Pull the elastic through the tunnel using a safety pin. Sew the ends of the elastic together.
Next, close the part you left open to pull the elastic through. Your skirt is ready.
Note: the skirt is longer than the dress because you added a waistband. It falls over the knee. If you want a shorter skirt, use a length 1 or 2 sizes shorter than the width.
