Tulle St. Patrick's Day Skirt for Barbie from Dollar Store Prop

I saw the really cute skirt pictured below at Walmart and thought it would be an easy Barbie craft for St. Patrick's Day. Plan A was to buy some tulle and sew it to elastic for the waistband, super simple. But then I saw that Dollar Tree had green tulle skirts already made... So Plan B was to use that, and a bonus, you cut it in half and either have a skirt for two girls or you can make one long and one short skirt. Options are always good:@)

Not haute couture, 
but a cute, quick project to help keep your girl's Barbie pinch proof😎

What I started with:
A short skirt with tights would be cute, 
and you could easily make four skirts since you wouldn't need to gather as much tulle for coverage.

What I did:
Pin two safety pins on each side so you don't loose the ends of the elastic and cut the skirt into two pieces (four safety pins total).
Hold one side of the cut elastic and remove the safety pin. Don't let go of the elastic! 
Begin to scrunch the satin waistband towards the other end.
You want to end up with about 4" of elastic with all of the fabric scrunched between it. 
Fold right side together and sew a 1/4" seam up the back and through the elastic.
Slip skirt up over doll's legs. Cut to desired length.
Dress doll and smile😉

My inspiration:

Barbie says, enjoy some St. Patrick's Day fun!

🍀Have a happy day🍀
