Default Twirl skirts??

I have been making skirts but they do not turn out how I want them too.
How do I make a skirt that is full but yet not bunched up at the waist area?

I have 2 girls waists are 31 and 32 inches
My younger daughter is around 25 inches and then there is the baby she wears 6m bottoms.

So how many yards of fabric? and how many inches shorter than their waist do I cut the elastic?

I got a tut on YCMT last year & it is really easy to follow. I used the same size rectangles through the whole thing but there were different amounts for each row of them. There was an formula for how many you use for each row of the skirt. I had never made one before & the 1st one turned out perfect.

Ok, let me try to help if I can. I think you're saying that you're using a lot of fabric which makes the waist too bunchy. Most twirl skirts have a yoke piece for the waist and then the layers of lots of fabric are sewn to that. The yoke is just a circle of fabric that you create the waistband out of and there are a couple inches that drop down before your main fabric which you can use a ton in a twirl skirt and still not be too bunchy. As far as the elastic goes I always measure the waist and then subtract 2 or 3 inches depending on how stretchy the elastic I'm using. I'm attaching a picture of a skirt I made with a longer yoke with more of a drop waist than normal so you can see what it looks like.
