What You Need
2 skirts which are flowing and fit you well in the waist band area
1. Choose one skirt to use as the bottom fabric. Cut the waist band off of it.
2. If the skirt has a lining piece detach it from the outside fabric.
3. Put the bottom of the detached lining to the bottom of the lining on the skirt which is still in one piece. Pin together and sew in place with a single stitch, followed with a zigzag to keep it together.
4. Now for the main part of the skirt. Since we are using two skirts beware that it will have a 'bubble' effect (as my sisters call it) where the one skirt piece meets the second skirt piece. I like the way it looks, but if you don't you can cut the skirt up more and piece to two top pieces together then add the two bottom pieces. That is completely up to you! :) The reason this happens is because the amount of fabric around the top of a skirt is considerably more than the fabric around the bottom. To help avoid this problem we have to 'ruffle' the fabric at the bottom of the main skirt.
5. Now piece the two good sides of each skirt together. Pin in place. Sew a straight stitch followed by a zigzag stitch. Let the skirt fall into place.
6. On the lining it will probably be tight, mine was. Use scissors to cut a slit in one side only to give your legs room to walk and move freely. You can sew the edges so they won't fray if you want to. I didn't.
7. There you have it! A simple skirt which can be whipped up in less than an hour!
