Supplies: We will be making the Cleo Skirt view B. We are providing everything you need to make your skirt including a copy of the pattern so you can make more. You will receive pre-cut fabric that is sized for the hip measurement you give us when you sign up. This is a very relaxed fit skirt with an elastic waist sizing isn't exact. [Please note: we will use fabric with a simple pattern, it won't be the same fabric as is in the photo]

This video walks you through how to measure your hips (you don't need to measure your chest). Don't have a measuring tape? Just use a piece of string and then measure the string.
