I love making skirts - so quick to make and so many options as to how to style them. This skirt was made with linen that I picked up for £3 at a vintage fair, and has an elastic waist to give it a gathered look. No zips, buttons or anything else difficult - it really is easy!
- Fabric - Any type or colour you like, although materials such as cotton and linen probably hang better at this sort of length. Heavier fabrics will probably stick out more and give a more 'puffed up' effect.
- Enough elastic to wrap around your waist/hips, depending on where you want it to sit on you
- Sewing machine/Needle and thread
- Chalk or pencil to mark fabric with
- Measuring tape
