I purchased 1 yard of knit fabric from Hancock Fabrics. It was a thicker knit which is MUCH easier to sew than thin knit material. The material was 36" x 60" .
*Remember, make sure that you pin the two pieces front to front so that the seem is on the inside of the skirt when you're done and not visible on the outside.
Step 6: Once you've attached the entire band to the top of your skirt You will want to attach the other 4 inch band to the top of the band that is already attached. Again, remember to sew the two pieces front to front so that the seam isn't visible. You will have some extra fabric which will need to be cut off so that the two bands are the same size.
Step 7: Once the two bands are sewn together, sew the second band down and attach it to the inside of your skirt, where your first seem is. This way the band at the top of your skirt is double thick and there are no visible seams on the outside of your skirt.
Hopefully this tutorial wasn't two confusing. I didn't do anything with the bottom because I think it looks fine just the way it is. Since it is knit it won't fray. One thing you could do is sew a ruffle at the bottom if you had some extra knit material. For info on how to make a ruffle, click here.
And that's it! I think it looks great and I can't wait to wear it (and make it other colors!!)
