You can make any color combination you would like. I did 10 rows pink, 2 rows black, 10 rows pink, 2 rows black, 10 rows pink, 1 row black and then the edging. I alternated colors on edging, but you can do whatever you wish with the colors.

I use elastic on all my daughter’s clothes. So I take the ¼ inch elastic, measure it to my daughter and cut. Then I sew the one end into a circle. Then I sc the elastic to the first row of the skirt. Fasten off and weave in ends. Here's a tutorial on how I do this. Tutorial: How to do elastic waist for skirts
