    Hi, I would like to know how to place a waist band on a skirt without it being too big. I just can’t get this done properly. Help, Please. Yours look soo wonderful.

      Hmm, what pattern are you using? Is it an elastic waistband?

    Hi Angela! A friend of mine, Anne, offers a Molly skirt pattern. I really love it and I found it easy to do because of her PDF pattern. Perhaps you would like to check it out? Here is the link to it: http://bit.ly/1puddle

    I see where you get on and can not find where to find the pattern. Let me know. Thanks Delroes

    That is correct on email addresss but for the sake of me I see no where the pattern for making the skirt. With patterns so expensive I thought I could use your site I am a grandma that wants to make her Grand child a skirt.

    Very cute! I’ve never sewn with knits either, but I’ll have to give this a try (probably for the cute little girls I know, but if I’m really brave, for myself!)
