This week, you’ll start making your first piece of clothing – the elastic waistband skirt. We’re starting there because it’s very possibly the easiest clothing project you will ever make. It doesn’t have curves or darts or any parts that would provide any sort of difficulty. In short, you’ll be making a tube with elastic at the top and a hem on the bottom.
