Fabulous Free Pattern Friday
To begin, use a skirt that fits and cut a yoke from that skirt. To cut a yoke, measure down from the waistline 9" all the way around the skirt. Make sure to add seam allowance to your new yoke.
To make the panels, measure the circumference of your yoke, for demonstration purposes, we'll use 32". Divide this number by 8. The result will be 4. We are making box pleats so you will need to multiply 4 x 3 which will equal 12". Measure down from the bottom of your yoke the desired length of your skirt.
You will need a notch at the center of your pattern. On either side of the center line, divide your pattern into thirds. Put another notch on the third that is closest to the edge of your pattern.
This skirt would also be spectacular as a full, floor length skirt.
Good luck and as always, if you decide to give it a try and have a problem, I'm always here to help.
