Now, for the basic "frame" of the skirt, it remains to connect points C and D, thus forming the Hem Line at the bottom of the skirt. This is again a block edge and needs a thicker line.

    That’s true, but then you would probably want to add some flare to give it a different profile. Remember, this is a “block”, not a “pattern” – it gives you a size-adjusted template from which it is expected that you would make any number of variations to make the result more interesting. Look at my tutorial on the princess dress to see an example of how to add flare.

    Am I right in thinking that this produces an absolutely straight skirt no wider at the hem than at the widest point of the hip?
