sewing: elastic waist skirt

today i made esme' a full skirt with an elastic waistband. 
she has a coral ruffle sweater that craig really likes on her
{ and he is not one to really say something about clothing to begin with! }
he says it reminds him of the painting, ' flaming june'
so i wanted to extend the use of her sweater by making her a matching skirt
 i didn't follow a formal tutorial but just used the know how i already had to throw this puppy together
 the skirt is one long piece of fabric that i edged with a honeycomb blue fabric for a trim
 and the waist band has a hidden pocket for elastic so it can be stretched as esme' grows
if you need a more formal tutorial check these out:
