Now you are going to draft the skirt. Start at the center front and back lines and extend these to length you want for your skirt plus hem allowance (usually measured from the waist, the finished length of the skirt of my dress is 52 cm). Then draw the side of the skirt. Use the beginning of the curve from waist to hip in the pattern as a starting point (this means your skirt will already be wider then the t-shirt pattern at its hemline, because t-shirt patterns are usually quite straight at the hip). Draw the hemline in a curve (the distance of waist to hem should be about 1 cm less at the sideseams, because they will stretch more in sewing and wearing)
