I found this pattern online ( http://wellofdreams.net/sewing/images/half-circle-skirt.jpg ) and my sister liked it so I made it for her. The best bit being that she should be able to wear it throughout her pregnancy as the size is adjustable (wrap around bit). It was dead easy to make, with the bias binding being the only time consuming bit. If you do make this skirt, you will need to know how to find the radius of a circle. Help can be found here – http://www.mathgoodies.com/lessons/vol2/circumference.html It is a great skirt and I may even make myself one, provided I can find the right material.
