I love skirts. But as I get older it seems that skirts are getting shorter or I am getting taller. I have a general rule that my skirts go to the knee. Skirts that length that are modest can be hard to find. So when I saw a modest slip extender at a local boutique I just had to have one. But at $30 a piece I decide I would have to wait. So I went to my local Joanns. They had a great selection of Lycra stretch fabric in lots of colors. Here is what I bought:
1 yard Lycra fabric
2 yards coordinating lace
1/4 inch elastic enough for your waist.
To start measure your hips. take that measurement and add 1 inch.
Measure the length you want, from waist to knee or wherever you want it to go to.
Using a knit stitch, sew a seam the length of your skirt.
Make a casing for your waist band.
Attach your lace.
