I also soaked up the advice from this pin from Crazy Little Projects because I liked all the tips about working with knits. This skirt was my first endeavor using a knit fabric, which scared me a bit knowing they can be finicky. Her tips proved very helpful!
1/5 – 2 yards of knit jersey fabric
3/4″ elastic (enough to go around your waist)
Scissors, needle, thread, sewing machine
Estimated Time To Complete ~ 3-4 hours
Step 1: Follow the tutorials above to create a pattern for your skirt based on your measurements. [Note: See step 6 for my modification to the waistband creation which resulted in a slightly different fabric cut.] Randomly Happy suggested using wrapping paper to create the pattern and this worked out quite well. I definitely wanted to use a pattern because the soft knit fabric moves around quite a bit and I never would have had straight lines had I cut the fabric directly using just the measurements.
