Elastic Band Skirt (from Make It & Love It)

I have a couple of friends who will welcome baby girls into this world. I knew I wanted to make them something no sure what. After searching and searching for ideas I came across the website Make It & Love It , I found this easy to follow tutorial for an elastic band skirt. It was perfect. Every little girl needs a skirt or two and it makes a very cute baby shower gift.

 I don't have a Serger and wanted a really nice finish on the bottom of the skirt so I added a contrasting band. If you are unsure how to sew on a contrasting band, do an internet search and you will find  there are several tutorials on how to do this.

It can be hard to know what measurements to go with, especially if you are making this for someone, else so I found this for helpful sizing chart from One Haute Tutu Shoppe. This sizing chart is definitely one I will save and refer to in future projects.
