DSCF5214now I measured around the top of the skirt

DSCF5215and cut a strip with that length plus 3cm and 7cm wide

DSCF5216now I pinned the waistband all around to the top, while stretching it a little

DSCF5217on one side I let 1cm seam allowance stay over, on the other side more cm

DSCF5218then I sewed it, folded in the middle right side inside and pinned the ends

DSCF5219sewed and cut the seam allowance

DSCF5220DSCF5221at the longer end I cut the corner

DSCF5222DSCF5223now I folded the right side out, and the seam allowance inside and pinned

DSCF5224and sewed right next to the waistband so the stitches hide in the fold

DSCF5227now I sewed a slightly crooked buttonhole

DSCF5228DSCF5229and the button on the waistband end thats a little longer
