(Brother machine this doesn’t include all those rows of transferring stitches with the lace transfer carriage only the knit rows.)
Knit 20 Rows.
Cut lining same width as skirt.
Cut longer than skirt so lining will hang out at the bottom. I cut the lining for 12-24 months 12” long.
If you have a serger, then serge the top and the bottom of the lining to prevent fraying.
Sew top of lining to waist band.
Fold Waist band over 1” to hem. Sew down waist band, leaving a small 1” opening for elastic to fit through.
Insert Elastic in waist band. Waist measurement I used 3/4” Elastic about 19”-20” long.
Sew Elastic ends together.
Close opening, sew down.
