I left one edge as a black serged edge. The other edge I folded over into a casing and added an elastic. (here are some ideas for finding elastic to reuse) The fabric is slightly transparent, but since the fabric is so gathered it makes up for it. And she wears tights underneath to keep her warm and modest. The polka dots are so cute and girly. (Sorry for the dancing toddler; it’s hard to keep her still.)
I made a very simple elastic gathered skirt without a pattern, but if you’d like to make your own simple skirt check out these 10 FREE Skirt Sewing Patterns in multiple sizes!
