Checkered dance skirt

Foto-1093 Foto-1092Foto-1094I’m working on this dance outfit, and started with the skirt. I modified Stil 22761, making it longer, with a low waist  and also making the front into one part. I copied it all to thick tracing paper, adding the seam allowance. Since I wanted the skirt cut on the bias, and the fabric already is a slinky polyester, I carefully pinned the pattern onto the fabric and cut it with my roller cutter,  to avoid the fabric from  sliding. It worked really well. The little squares in the weaving made it easy to see I was exactly on the bias, I drew a line across the pattern to make sure it was right.
