Measure the elastic around the waist of the person who will be wearing the skirt. You’ll want it to be snug, but not too tight. Cut.

Put the two ends together, and serge, or use a stretch-stitch on your sewing machine.

Place the elastic face-up on the serrger or sewing machine. Put the edge of the tulle on top. Every 1″, add a pleat. You can measure exactly, but you’ll get a feel for it, and it will be pretty close.

When you get all the way around, overlap 4-6″ of the tulle, and keep sewing and pleating.
