Finial step

You can measure how wide you need the waste band to be so you can run your elastic around.
Make sure you leave an opening to run your elastic though. With a safety pin on one end of your elastic run it around your skirt making sure not to let your elastic roll. When it comes out we're your started sew the end together and sew the opening closed.
Yea your got a cute simple skirt !

See in waste band

Do the same for the waste band as you did for the hem only make the first turn in narrow and the next turn wide for the elastic to fit in.

Next step waste band

Do a running stich around the top of your skirt with the linning and top fabric together. This will keep them in place so you can do the waste band.

Next step for simple skirt
