1/2 yd vinyl or other non-fray fabric (more for big kids)
Lay out the fabric and measure the waist. Use pants or a skirt that fits the child and lay it on the fabric. Fold the fabric over to make it go all the way around the waistband and add a couple inches, then cut. Decide how long you want the skirt to be and cut to the appropriate length.
Cut a waistband by first measuring the skirt fabric, then doubling the length. Cut a strip an inch wide.
Cut strips in skirt. I did eight strips because it was easy. Fold in half lengthwise, then fold in half again. Cut on the folds leaving 2 or 3 inches at the waist, then cut each strip in half. Slightly round the bottom corners of each strip. Next make 1 1/4″ vertical cuts along the waist (waistband will thread through these). Don’t cut too close to the top of the waist because you don’t want them to pull through.
*Apparently I didn’t get a picture of this- oops!* If it doesn’t make sense, look at the next pictures to see how it ended up.
Thread the waistband through the slits in the waist.
