How I made a skirt a one size bigger

I have a new love when it comes to sewing accessories: Wide stretch elastic. It has so many uses.

I bought this skirt on a sale a few years ago a size too small. A size S, and I am not wearing it in the picture, since I looked like a rolled sausage, when I did.
Enter: Stretch elastic.


 After, it fits :) :

The sides:

I am one size smaller at the waist than at the hips, so I made sort of a pleat with the elastic at the waist for a better fit.

Did you put the elastic only on one side, or both?

Fantastic job! I used stretch knit to enlarge a too small suede skirt too!
