For this tablecloth skirt, I used foldover elastic for the waistband instead of wide waistband elastic, which I used for the last one. The waistband is smaller on this one, but the raw edge at the top of the skirt is complete encased, which is nice. Here are some tips for using foldover elastic. Be sure to use a zigzag stitch because this needs to be able to stretch. Instead of creating pleats, as I did with the last skirt, this time I gathered the top of the skirt with dental floss. See how to do this here.

Here’s the finished project:
