**hello to all stopping by from Studio 5 today**
wide elastic (2″ or 3″ in the color desired)
Sewing machine, scissors & pins
Find that sweater you like that isn’t too boxy in shape (if it is boxy you may want to take in 1 side a bit to make it more fitted)
Determine the length you want your skirt to be and cut the body of the sweater to that length or cut the sweater at the underarm area.
Measure your waist and cut your elastic to that length. Overlap the ends of the elastic about 1/2″ and sew a zigzag stitch over the ends. Now your waistband is ready to attach the sweater to it.
Slide the elastic over the top of the sweater – the cut end. Position the part of the waistband that is sewn in the middle of the back and pin to the sweater overlapping it about 1/2″. Pin the front middle and the 2 sides. Then work between the 4 pins adding other pins to attach all of the sweater.
Sew to attach the sweater to the elastic. If your sweater is wider than the elastic loop pull the elastic as your sew it. This will naturally gather it a bit. Super easy and fast!
