I hope you can read the instructions when you click on the image. Let me know if you can't and I'll email you the jpg.
Fabric Preferably knits, I don't recommend woven fabric as it might not be able to stretch as well around our curvier parts. Require length for these instructions 60cm.
Elastic 5mm elastic. Cut 5 pieces of your size.
XS = 55cm
S = 65cm
M = 75cm
L = 95cm
XL = 105cm
Sewing Machine that does a zig-zag stitch
With right side facing in
Cut on Fold
XS = 45cm x 60cm (60cm is the length I'm suggesting, choose yours as you like!)
S = 53cm x 60cm
M = 61cm x 60cm
L = 69cm x 60cm
XL =77cm x 60cm
Along the wrong side of the fabric, chalk 2cm from top cut edge a 2cm line. Chalk a total of 5 lines 2cm apart.
Chalk the cross marks
At the fold (centre front)
At the 1/4 marks (between the fold and the centre back)
Flip piece over and mark the other 1/4 marks
You will have a total of three marks along these lines, the raw edge being the fourth
Pen your 1/4 marks on your elastic
Fold in half, 1/2 mark
Fold the half to the ends, 1/4 mark
You will have a total of three marks along the elastic, the raw edges being the fourth
Sewing the Elastic
Along the wrong side of the fabric, stabilize the elastic at the edge.
Sew zig zag and pull both the fabric and the elastic, matching the 1/4 marks, following the chalk line.
Repeat until all 5 pieces of your elastic are sewn.
With right sides together sew 1cm from the edge the centre back, making sure all the elastic ends are sewn into the seam.
How to Wear It
- Were with a long sleeved top underneath as a layering piece, cinche it with a belt and tight-tight jeans!
- With a tight top with leggings and wear it as a high waisted skirt
- Or as a low waisted skirt with a few tank tops layered one over the other, a bunch of cheap long necklaces and flats
