Elf Skirt Instructions
Cut out one skirt piece with your fabric. Lay the pattern on a fold and cut out the donut shape. Since we aren’t hemming this fabric, be sure to cut smoothly for a neat look. Knit fabric won’t fray very much so you don’t need to hem it!
I’m using 1″ elastic for this skirt, it makes a cute waistband. Cut a 6″ circle and overlap the ends to create a circle. Glue.
Put a dab of glue at the back of the waistband and attach skirt on top.
Fold elastic in half to find a halfway point on the other side. Fold the skirt to find the other side of the skirt and glue together.
Draw a line of glue on the elastic. Stretch the elastic to fit the skirt and press skirt on top.
Finish gluing the skirt to the elastic.
Glue a piece of ribbon to the back of the skirt.
Tie the ribbon into a bow on the front to finish the skirt.
