"Baby Got Back!!"
Once again I folded the fabric two times with the folds on the left and top. Used my twine and chalk to make the rounded edge.
I had about 6 yards of green plaid fabric that looks like material for bed sheets. I used this material to practice on. And before ruining good fabric, I made a practice skater skirt with it. The waistline was too small, so I cut this fabric using the cut piece as a guide, but cut it a little wider. If you're guessing and not using a real pattern, ALWAYS, I repeat, ALWAYS, cut small, try it on and then cut again if it doesn't fit.
Not shown, but I cut another piece of fabric to make the waistband. Here's the finished product.
So.....how did I do?
Guess what? The waistband was too big. So I cut it straight down the back and put in a zipper.
