Again I used this pattern again ...
From Elle Apparel
First I had to get the pattern to be even.
I let the edge of the bottom layer to curl up and allow me to make sure the fabric was even. This was harder than I thought- this little trick helped me.
Also if you notice the pattern repeated every 8 ish inches. This is really important b/c you have to make sure you have enough. Luckily I had more than I needed!
Here is after the first found of cutting. I added an inch in the length and made the waistband smaller since the blue lace maxi was just a hair too big.
Now to make the other piece and have the side match. Oh! This was a challenge. So I laid the top over the full layer of fabric (i.e. no folding in half here!). And I got everything to match up. If you look close enough you can see the first piece- yes it is hard.
Here is the waistband. Again did the same thing with trying to match up.
It is a super fun skirt. I can't wait to wear it and play with different tops! :) Yay!! There may be another skirt in the works. It all depends, let's see!
