I made this skirt for an 8 years old girl so the width is 1m, the lenth 60cm and the elastic 63cm.

1.   Gather supplies. Wash and iron your fabric.

2. Fold one of your fabric in half, right sides together. 
Measure the width, 50 for me since it is folded, and mark it with a shark or pins.
 
Measure the lenth (60cm for me) and mark it.

3. Determine the shap of your skirt. You can cut a rectangle or a kind of a strange shape like here. Mark it or pin it.

4. Cut your fabric, don't forget to add the seam alowances! For that projetc, I recommend 1cm.

5. Now do the same with your other fabric.
