I found this skirt for a dollar at a thrift store in Eagle Rock last month. It was a cool, zigzag, metallic patterned fabric, but it was also huge. I wish I saved the before picture because you would all just laugh. But I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it and get to work!
I found and marked the side seams, center front, and center back with pins. Then I attached 1" wide elastic to those center points and anchored it into place.
Try it at home with a cheap skirt and see what you can do with a little elastic and imagination.
