I used the coffee date dress pattern to make a skirt.
For hem, cut out two sizes to big and make hem/seams using the extra cloth you cut out. There is not seam allowance, I went up one size, but should have gone up two to make a nicer hem/seam. I used a 9 inch zipper for the skirt instead of the 18 inch zipper the pattern calls for in the dress.
