This skirt really is the most comfortable thing you’ll ever wear, and whats great about it is it’s soooo easy to make! There’s only two parts to it; the band, and the skirt. It will take you less than an hour to make, and you’ll want to make one in every color, because you’ll want to live in them all the time! It’s comfort all depends on the type of fabric you choose. I bought a yard of a soft, stretchy, light (but not too light) jersey knit.
For the band, you want to start by folding your fabric in half, then upwards about 4 inches (or less if you don’t want a wide band. Make sure the fabric stretches longwise, that way it can stretch going over your hips, while putting it on.
Measure and cut HALF (+ half an inch for sewing) the amount that you need all together. My waist was 32in, so I cut 16 1/2 in. Then, open it up, fold upward and then in half, and then pin and sew it into a loop. This is your band, yay! Try it on, make sure it fits nicely. I also added a little elastic to the sides to make them ruched, but this step is totally optional. (Find out how to do that in my T-Shirt Remodel post!!)
Now, for the skirt part. Fold the rest of your fabric in half (stretchy part going horizontally) Find the center of both the fabric and band, and match them up. Mark from the edges of the band, down to the very end of the fabric.
Try on your new skirt, and mark your length where you want it to come down to, then cut, and sew! I used the zig zag option on my machine, so I didn’t have to fold the edges up twice and sew. When I tried that the first time, it looked awkward. The zig zag stitch came out great, and draped nicely.
