There really wasn't a lot of measuring and carefulness with these babies. I did learn a bit of a better technique with the second one, using the additional "half" for the sides. Thankfully the black and white (or maybe it's dark blue??) skirt has such a busy pattern, you can't see what I did there. :) After getting the width I wanted, I made an elastic casing at the top and used 1 inch ribbed, non-roll elastic. A little embellishment from felt scraps at the bottom gave them a fun touch. For less than $3 each, I have 2 skirts to wear. I love that I don't have to worry about them getting ruined nor do I have to worry about ease of movement as I photograph my way through Uganda. :)
Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday!
