Inspired by some paper-bag pants on Anthropologie’s site (http://www.polyvore.com/micro_climate_pants/thing?id=17450162), I decided to make myself a skirt. There is no pattern needed: just measure the desired skirt length from waist and add hem (I did 3" for 2" hem) and add 3.5" on top (for 1" doubled ruffle above the waist-band elastic plus 1.5" to encase 1" elastic). The width is 30", which I what I like for gathers (I just use a width of 60" wide fabric, so my 30" includes seam allowances). I added pockets (used pocket bags from another pattern and attached them 5" down from the waist). And finally, I made a fabric tie long enough to tie in a bow. It was so easy, that I even made a second one and gave it to my sister (which doesn’t happen all that often:).
