Yeah! Eseosa has now completed her practise skirt!

This is a super way to test out the fit of your patter design. Once you have measured and created your pattern on recycled or inexpensive broadcloth, curtain lining, whatever you have on hand - baste (i.e. sew together with long, easily removable stitches) the pieces together, test fit, add your zipper, test fit again.

If all is well, pull out the basting and use the cloth pieces for a template for your REAL skirt fabric! Durable, easy to roll up and store for using over and over again.

Adjusting the pattern - adding pleats, pockets gores etc. Is easy to do without remaking the whole template!
