Determine the following measurements before beginning:a.
 
Underbust/Upperbelly measurement:
Taken directly under your bust line, where the skirt willultimately sit.b.
 
Front Length measurement (fl):
From the center of your “underbust/upperbelly” measurement,measure downward, over your belly, where you would like the highest point of your skirt.c.
 
Back Length measurement (bl):
You may ask a friend to take this measurement for you or youcould look in a mirror to determine how many inches you would like the back to swoop downfrom the front.2.
 
To determine your pattern “waist” size (
), you will want to add approximately 6 inches to yourunderbust/upperbelly measurement. Once you have this measurement, use the chart below todetermine your radius (
) of your “waist” circle on your pattern:

On a small piece of scratch paper, draw out a mini-version of your pattern using the (r), (w), (fl) and (bl)measurements so that you can determine how much pattern paper you will need to craft your realpattern. It should look somewhat like this:6.
