new plan, new standby fave. take 1-2 yards 60 knit. (jersey knit, no hemming). measure hips, or largest area. divide by two. that is the new waist measurement, mark this along top edge. now mark straight for 1 (casing), then gradually angle from top edge to bottom length (A-line). cut longer than you think you want, you can always trim later. flowy, comfy, summer maxi skirt. even for me, I can do it all in an afternoon!
