Full on teacher mode took over and I made a worksheet. I know. I can't help it. Go ahead and roll your eyes at me. At least I didn't add lines for name, date, and class period. Halfway into making it I thought it might be helpful to someone else and I decided to post it. The instructions assume either a very basic sewing knowledge or someone to help.
The pattern works best for about knee length or shorter. Too much longer than that and you need a slit or kick pleat. I won't be doing that with the girls. Use and make adjustments as you like, just don't call it your own and post it elsewhere. :) I'm just a little disappointed that Google Docs wouldn't let me include my original clipart to make it more exciting. Some day I'll figure out how to make technology work.
Easy Cheesy Straight Skirt instruction sheet
This pattern is for any body type, so long as your elastic can stretch big enough to go over your hips. The pattern is easy to embellish. I made the one in the picture about 25 lbs ago (woohoo!) and added a pleated extension, ribbon, and an arrangement of ribbon flowers.
I hope it's helpful to someone!
