Adjustable Skirt

I am a huge discount shopper and can't go into a store with out a quick run through the clearance section.  I found this size 18 skirt at Justice for $3.00.  My daughter wears a 6.

I unpicked a 2 inch section of the waistband and put a button hole the width of the elastic in the inside waistband layer.  Then I pulled the elastic out and sewed it together so it would fit.  Thread the doubled over elastic through the button hole.  Re-sew the waistband.

 Now when she gets bigger, I can unpick the elastic and re-sew it without opening up the waistband again.
I like the option of making it bigger bc I only have 1 girl!
