elastic waist skirts

so, i had a productive day for the first time in like, i dont know, years. i woke up, worked out (if you call bouncing around to the same tae bo dvd that ive used for the last twelve years a workout), we went to church, and i made these elastic waist skirts. insanity. dont be fooled, however, they are super easy and i am in no way a perfectionist so they are not good, but they were super fun. as you can tell. i made a million. i just couldnt stop. i used these instructions and it was so easy (she tells you exactly how to do everything. she really makes it sooo easy). (and i just found these for a little one. and with hearts!! i love it!!) i want to use the same pattern for easter skirts with ben a matching tie with the seersucker... and then allison told me she found wider elastic and i loved that so i had to try one with that.

then aves found some rainbow fabric that i had and insisted that i make her a rainbow skirt. and then i saw the little girl tutorial (how stinkin cute is that skirt!! and i love the pockets. and that little model... so cute) on freshly picked and added heart pockets. and then she had to wear the heart shirt. of course.

Ok you are really stepping up your game. I am so impressed. They are all so cute and the brown woven belt, a perfect touch. Now I think you need to consider doing one for Mini, JoJo, and Honey, we would wear them with great joy.

These are great I've made two skirts using this tutorial but I'm curious as to what type of fabric you used in the first 2 skirts?

Because the first skirt I did I used polyester which wasn't a very good idea because it looked very bell ish and the second one I used cotton and it came out okay I think it will look better when its washed..

Do you think maybe if instead of having the fabric double the size of the elastic it should be a few inches less so that its not too bell shaped? I hope this is making sense & that someone can help me :/
