Tuesday's Tute: Simple Ballet Skirt
This little skirt can be made with any time of light weight fabric. We used tulle, but lace or chiffon will be great. Chiffon would make it more opaque. We used fold over elastic for the waist, but you can use ribbon to form a casing and slide elastic through if you'd rather. Fold over elastic makes this project really quick and usually costs about 70 cents a yard. It's the stuff you see those elastic headbands made from...hint, hint. You're not likely to find it in a chain store, but it's widely available online.
