DIY drop waist skirt

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 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
