Pinterest sewing project: Rectangle skirt

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.

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)

$0.25 Thread

Total: $3.25

Pretty awesome I think.

What have you all been working on?
