To make your traditional fae skirt, you will need:
1″ wide elastic; your waist size plus 6 extra inches for tying, stitching, etc. — trim off excess
various and assorted sparkling netting/veil/tulle.
Other ribbons and such that sparkle.
Cut the netting in various 3 to 6 inch wide strips. (length will depend on how long you want it to be.) I fold the netting into a small packet and use my rotary cutter. Can be done with scissors, though. This is not exact and a good time to use up your scraps. (Surely, I am not the only one with netting scraps!) I use the less expensive and if it is on sale, so much the better. The cheap (there I said it) netting can get wild and crazy…so does my strips…only makes the skirt that much sweeter!)
Some of the ends on the strips trail away to nothing. If you measure mine across, never does it stay the same…so do not fret that…just push your OCD someplace else for this project…lololol…I know I have too….lolololol….
Fold the length in half and make a lark’s head knot or attach as if for a square knot (google this...it is easy peasy) on the elastic.
Add netting and other sparkles until the skirt is filled.
Wear it over anything or with nothing….ohhhhh la la!
Easy and cheap enough so that you can have a wardrobe of them!
