In this video tutorial I show you ho to make a simple elastic waist skirt. This is a great beginner project that can be made in any size. All you need is two simple measurements and about 1/2 yard of fabric (for up to a 3T size), one yard of elastic and your basic sewing supplies.

With the warm weather coming in this is a must-make DIY project! It’s so easy you will want to make at least a dozen! As far as how much time it takes to make one– I would say that the first time you do it it may take you about 1 hour. After that you will know how it comes together and can probably whip them up in 30 minutes or less! It takes me about 15 minutes to make one these.

I hope you enjoy this video tutorial for this simple little girl’s skirt. Feel free to leave me a comment letting me know what other types of kid sewing projects you’d like to see me make some videos on.

Thanks for watching!

    Thank you. I'm a first grade teacher and my students are performing for Christmas. I wanted to make skirts for my girls but I didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money on fabric. Your skirt was the perfect solution. I sewed eight skirts in like 4 hours and then my volunteer parents hot glued silver garland along the bottom and they look super great. Thank you so very much.

  20. thanks so much for the vid.. could you please make one on how to make shorts. thanks
