Sewing Shortcut ! Double Layer Gathered Skirt with Elastic Waistband – the easy way !

I found a sewing shortcut to make a double layer gathered skirt while playing with this cotton eyelet lace fabric. You know the feeling when a good idea hits you ? I was so excited ! The only thing is I didn’t need a double layer gathered skirt, but I just have to test out if my idea works.


And so, here is how it looks :


and the video tutorial :

You’ll need 2 yards of this type of fabric and you’ll use them all up. No fabric scrap headaches for later 🙂  No hemming + the waist self-gathers when the elastic’s inserted.
