Just cut a piece of elastic to the desired length and sew the ends together (I will over lap to make it more secure). Cut your fabric in to strips of 2-3 inches in width, depending on the look you want. To find the length you want, measure from your (or the person who will be wearing it) waist to the desired length and add 1 inch. If you're making a long skirt cut the ends in a point (you can also round the ends for a different look). Then simply fold the fabric strips in half and attach them to the elastic band. To do so, just wrap the folded end around the band and pull the ends through the loop. Pull the elastic band taunt and fill it up with fabric strips. Then, just put it on and DANCE!
