I used a spool of eyelet from Joann's that was 5 yards for $2.50. A bargain (much cheaper than the cut by the yard stuff.)
Sewed the skirt tube; serged and made the casing at the top for the elastic. I then serged the bottom edge and pinned the eyelet to it. (right sides together) Put the elastic in and you're done.
And do a little twirling for old skirts that are new again. (It was all about the twirling in the photo shoot.)
I even think the Bustle Skirt looks really cute....kind of retro/modernish.
And now I want one. With some wide vintage cream lace around the bottom for some of my dresses.
