As promised, I've rummaged through the depths of my computer and unearthed my two free tutorials for making skirts with an elastic waist! You can either use them to draft your own skirt patterns, or you can simply print out the instructions and follow them each time.
I've added them to the Tutorials section, but you can also download the PDF files right here:
Skirt with visible fancy elastic waist (like the one above)
Please bear in mind that these are from 2008, when my digital camera left a lot to be desired, so some of the photographs aren't that great! At some stage I'll get around to re-doing these tutorials with better photos, but you're very welcome to download these two in the meantime.
