The Stay Put Yoga Skirt

I don't know about you... but my attempts at making skirts with knit waistbands have fallen flat. They simply wouldn't stay up on my active daughter; even when store bought ones would. I normally ended up unpicking a bit and running elastic through, while wondering why I couldn't make it work.

I finally found the secret! Stretch interfacing! Up until a few months ago, I had no idea that there was such a thing. Basically, the interfacing just adds thickness and stability to your knit fabric-- without hampering it's stretchabilty.

I was able to work with some of Pellons Xtreme Stretch interfacing and am elated for with the results! This opens up tons of possiblities for me-- pj's, yoga skirts and more!
