Sewing Tutorial: Turn a Vintage Tablecloth into a Skirt Part II

Sewing Tutorial Turn a Vintage Tablecloth into a Skirt

See the first installment here for more information on measuring and cutting your skirt. For this example, I used foldover elastic for the waistband instead of wide waistband elastic. The waistband will be smaller on this one, but the raw edge at the top of the skirt will be complete encased, which is nice. Instead of creating pleats, this time gather the top of your skirt with dental floss. See how to do this here. Here are some tips for using foldover elastic. Be sure to use a zigzag stitch because this needs to be able to stretch.
