|I washed it, don't worry :P|
Let's make a skirt out of it, eh? Though maybe a skirt different than the half-failure from last time. Since I suck at sewing gathers properly - I'll keep it simple by sewing straight to stretched elastic. Much easier.
First, I measured around my stummy. I didn't want it as low as my hips, nor as high as my natural waist, so the belly-button was a good mid-point. And no, my new year's resolution of getting back into shape hasn't happened. It's just not as easy when you don't have pre-wedding nerves I guess.
Anyway, cut the elastic about the same size as the waist measurement. I used the thickest black elastic the craftstore had, 3 inches wide!
Make your skirt fabric a whole lot longer than your waistband. The longer it is, the more bunchy it will be. I just used the entire width of the bedsheet. Cut it as long as you want the skirt to be. Mine was about 1 3/4 yard long and 17 inches tall.
Then sew your elastic together into a loop. I threw in a zig-zag stitch for extra sturdiness.
Since I used the sheet edge that was already finished, I didn't have to worry about hemming any loose edges on the waistband side of the skirt. That, my friends, was all there was to it! Instant Power Ranger skirt!
Oh! And while we're talking Mighty Morphin - I made some silly power coin buttons to go with our shirts!
Did you have character bed sheets as a kid? Maybe you still do? :)
