Brooklyn, New Yo...
Even though I went through heck** to get the pattern printed out I was able to make this skirt in about 24 hours once I had it and I can happily say that It was worth all the effort and then some.
I love love LOVE my fabric, pink with grey and brown hounds-tooth wool which I purchase with my matching pink lining all for $18, SCORE!
I had a pink 9" zipper in my stash and I got to make excellent use of my brand new serger (something else I also love love LOVE).
With time of the essence and practicality on my mind I stuck to the basic instructions, and I am thrilled with the results. My only caveat is that I ran out of daylight and help to take pictures, so I had to make use of many lamps and my tripod. I think you’ll get the idea.
1) Extract each PDF file as a separate PDF.
2) Open re save each page as a PNG.
3) Open and print each PNG.
4) Copy/resize each page to make the test square = 10cm.
(FYI, this includes some basic 7th grade algebra and fractions…. just sayin)
