Here's my version and how I made it:
I started with a long skirt and a pair of scissors.
My first cut was about an inch and a half longer than I wanted the final length. My second cut was for double the width +1 inch for the width I wanted the waist band. The bottom portion is in my scrap bin for now.
For the waist band, I folded it in half, ironed and seamed the whole things with an angle on the end (left an opening for turning).
When I laid it out, this is what I planned on having the finished skirt look like. However, I forgot about the fact that the zipper had to stay in the back (based on the placement of the darts, I wasn't interested in totally starting over, if I was, I would have cut differently).
So, after a bit of trial and error, I settled on this. This is the back of the skirt with the zipper, I never actually finished the one end. Sorry I didn't take pictures, but I sewed the waist band on and top stitched. I then wrapped the "tie" around and wore it pinned in place. My plan had been to use a funky pin but while getting ready to go out, realized I didn't have one! Guess that will have to go on my to make list.
Sorry Sandy, you aren't getting your skirt back!
