Not sure what to do with some scrap fabric you have laying around? I wasn't. I usually open my storage closet and just stare trying to get inspired. There are tons of tutorials out there, so here's to one more.
Step 3: Lay out your strips in the pattern you want. You'll need double the length of the waist you're fitting. My daughter wears a 12-18 month dress so I needed 15 strips.
Step 4: Remember those top edges you left raw? Fold them down twice making a casing.
Step 6: With a safety pin attached to your elastic, simply thread the elastic strips through the fabric strip casing.
I made this for our babes so I wanted it to be a little extra poofy. I added a few strips of sparkly mesh in between each fabric strip, but it's an extra step that you might want to skip if it's made for an older child.
