    1. This is the shortcut method for attaching the pockets as I do no want it to get in the way of the flow of the skirt. My email is listed on the google+ page. If u hav any problems. let me know. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Depends on whether you prefer the full circle or 1/2 circle pattern, The 1/2 circle pattern will cost less since it requires only about 1/2 - 3/4 of a meter of cloth. It will cost very much less than what you find at the shops.

  4. Is the waist measurement divided by 4 since the fabric is being folded before its cut?

  5. Good morning, I have a silly question I'm still a novice at sewing so please forgive me. I see that your skirt has a tab like closure. Do I just cut the waist band a few inches longer to have that affect? I completed one this morning but even with the hook and eye it's not a clean look if that makes sense.

  6. What material did you use for the full circle skirt?

  7. Hi Jessica, It's Koshibo Polyester, quite heavy and does not wrinkle easily, just right for a circle skirt.
