You will need:
- 2 different fabrics (I used chiffon and a thin cotton) remember you fabric must be at least waist measurement + 0.5 x required length
- Gold or Silver closed zip any length you like
- Sewing machine
- Matching thread (to fabric and zip)
- Elastic/shirring thread
- Material scissors
Make sure your fabric is the right size, mine is 1.5m by 1m that is wide enough for my waist and long enough to touch the ground. if you wan a shorter skirt then you can cut it shorter.
Then hem one edge of both of your fabrics (the longer edge)
Thread your machine for shirring and place your fabrics wrong sides togther on the edges where you hemmed and sew a line of shirring, any width you like, I used roughly 1.5cm. Remember to stretch the fabric tight when sewing a new row.
Then sew about 11 more rows of shirring, you can do more or less as long as they reach your hip.
(This is very tidious but its well worth it)
Fold the skirt in half right sides in and sew them together untill the end of the shirring. Then sew the inner layer first and the outer layer second, the skirt will have more movement this way.
Next cut the bottom of the skirt so its all the same length and hem the edges of both fabrics.
