I made this flouncy skirt for Maggie for Christmas using some leftover material from the dress Jodi wore to our wedding. There is more, so I may make a skirt for myself also.I just cut a rectangle about 80 by 15 inches for the skirt, and another 2.5 by 21 inches (her waist measurement + seam allowance) for the waistband. I hemmed the skirt (love my rolled hem foot!), pinned it to the waistband, gathered it and sewed it on. Then I just used 3/4" elastic to complete the waistband.
