Ruby Murray shows how easy it is to make a gathered skirt on a wide elastic waistband.  Rather than starting from scratch, she uses a thrifted dress.  This is SUCH a good idea – for a handful of reasons.  For starters, it’s cheap.  Thrifted clothes are usually cheaper than buying straight yardage.   It’s good for the environment, too – using old materials instead of new.  And, you save tons of time by making use of the existing hem.  She made this skirt in just 10 minutes.  Get the tute.
