Simple Smocked Skirt Tutorial

This skirt came together in no time flat.  If you’ve got about a yard of fabric and some elastic thread on hand, you can make this right now.  Here’s how I did it (click to enlarge and/or print):

I love how this looks with a thick belt and leggings.  It’s also super comfortable since elastic thread is very forgiving.  If you’ve never used elastic thread before, I recommend reading this tutorial first.

If you decide to try out this skirt, let me know how it turns out!  I’d love to see photos!
