✂️👚How to make cute skirt for cute girls👚✂️

Asalam u alaiqum (peace be upon you) Beautiful people 
How you are doing! Today I am sharing in a very simple way to make cute skirt for cute little girls. I come up with a different and easy idea. This skirt will look good on printed leggings or skinny jeans because it have a look of side cuts. I hope you like it (If you do not like to read then skip this to watch a video down below)
You can use any fabric to create this skirt but to create a looser more flowy skirt, use a light and airy fabric. I chose this lilac two-tone velvet fabric, which gives a beautiful shine too. I fold fabric in half and mark the length plus flare of the skirt. It is totally up to you how much flare you want. I had less material but skirt will look good if it has more flare...
One side of fabric which is closed going to be skirt waist (you can see in picture below)
I pinch the fabric with both hands in arbitrary position. Then picking up and setting down the material...
I mark waist measurement (making sure by adding 2 to 4-inches extra in original waist measurement)
I made a small cut with sharp cutter then cut the fabric with scissors (do not make fun of my foot he-he)...
You can also cut by putting the material down in square shape, making sure mark the middle point so when you cut in arbitrary angle' the sides of skirt are equal in length...

From left over fabric I made a pattern to secure the waist seam (length and width of pattern should be 2-inches longer then waist)...
Need to cut a same size of waist in pattern too (leaving 1-inch on both sides for seam allowance)....

Placing the skirt right side upwards then putting the pattern on skirt right side downwards (Pinning both material together will be easier to sew skirt and pattern seam)...

After sewing the seams I made small cuts in the corner of waist skirt so when I turn the pattern inside it will give fine look...
Cut your elastic band to be the length of your hips, minus 1 to 2-inches (if your hips measure 30-inches, your elastic should be cut to 28-inches)...
Securing the end of elastic...
Then stretching elastic along the seam as I sew...

I also sew the bottom/sides seam of skirt (folding half an inch inside)...
The elastic of this skirt will be hidden inside the pattern. I fold the pattern inside then use pins to secure this section along the waist of the skirt and hand-stitch along the sides...


This is how inside looks...

Front side of skirt...

There you have it. I hope you like the idea. Thank you for reading beautiful's x!
