I know that most everyone loves Pinterest. Recently I have been trying to actually make something from my boards there. Enter the rectangle skirt. I let my sister pick something she wanted me to make from my sewing board and this is what she picked.
So I took about 2 yards of fabric, cut a hold in the middle for the waist, hemmed it, and added the elastic. I didn’t hem the bottom because the fabric I chose didn’t really need it.

and a side view.
The next time I will probably use a lighter fabric, but I think it turned out well.
Now the total making time was about 20 minutes, it would have been longer if I had hemmed the bottom. The total cost was
$1.00 for elastic
$2.00 for fabric (on sale at the Walmart)
Pretty awesome I think.
What have you all been working on?
