Another piece of “office” fleece. It’s great to go to work and feel like I’m wrapped in a blanket all day in my frigid office!

    Hi. What kind of elastic did you use? How wide? In the instructions you wrote: “install elastic by stitching it to upper edge”. I am not sure I understand that, because normally I would stitch the elastic down on its short sides, so that it can be stretched freely. Great skirt though – I am asking these questions because I would love to make one!

    Great job! I’m a self-taught novice/intermediate, to exagerate a bit. How the heck did you make the pattern yourself??!! I’ve dont that with a few things and they come out ok, but nothing to brag about! Guess I’ll have to do some more reading in my idiot’s guide books! :)

    are you sure it’s a size 48 though, you look smaller than that…

    LOL! Well, I have to admit, I’m not great with sizes. I’m all over the place when I use a prepared pattern (multi-size patterns are THE BEST!), and that’s US sizes… (12-10-16 for chest-waist-hip). The finished skirt has a 48" hip circumference, so I figured with wearing ease, it’s a 48. But if you just use your measurements, you’ll get a great fit at any size.

    I took the printed out pdf and laid it over the hand-drawn pattern last night, and I did make the arch on the flare a little tighter on the pdf. I’m going to try to fix it later on today, but I thought I’d let you know that you might want to ease up on the tight part of the curve there. (I was drawing in Illustrator from my math notes, not scans of my hand-drawn pattern.)

    Its a fabulous shape and a great fabric- are you sure it’s a size 48 though, you look smaller than that…

    I made a PDF of the pattern drawing, but I couldn’t work out where to upload it in the how-tos…so I tried to add it as a pattern. I guess that wasn’t the right move. :D I’ll try creating a how-to instead, meantime, I tossed the pdf on my server: instructions & pattern for Garbo Sz 48
