Here's what I did.
Measure your subjects waist (my daughter's was 20 inches).
Fold the fabric in half the width of your measurement.
Measure out the length you want (I used her existing skirts as an idea). Then cut your piece out. You should have a long rectangle shape.
Fold it with the right sides facing in and pin the two short ends together.
Now sew it together. You now have a large tube like piece.
Fold over the edge for your elastic waistband, mine was about an inch. Pin and press with an iron.
Sew your waistband hem, leaving a gap to string in your elastic.
Cut a piece of thin elastic (1/2 inch wide is what I used) at the length you measured as your waist.
Using a safety pin, thread your elastic through the waistband and pin and sew the elastic together.
Then you can sew your waistband together.
And you're done! No need to finish off your skirt hem since it's a jersey knit.
Put it on and chill out.
That's what she did.
I'm loving the colorful stripes more than her, I'm sure!
