DIY drop waist skirt

A few weeks ago while browsing Pinterest, I spotted a pick of Natasha Goldenberg wearing the cutest red drop waist skirt and decided it would look equally as awesome in this bright green ponte knit from moodfabrics.com found here,

This is a nice ponte with a lot of stretch that sews, irons and cuts well.  It’s definitely a great fabric to have if in need of a standout color.

The pattern used was this McCalls M6842 view D with the following pattern alterations:

-Added 7″ to the length of the yoke
-Added 16″ to the length of the skirt
-Moved the zipper to the side
