Calculating the fabric
Whether you choose to make your skirt from voile or net curtains or from shop-bought tulle or netting, you’ll need to ensure you have sufficient fabric. You’ll need to be able to cut three to four layers of fabric that are three times your waist measurement in width and around 60–65cm (24–26in) in length; with enough left over for a narrow waistband. So, ideally, your fabric width needs to be at least three times your waist measurement. If the width of your fabric is less than this, you will need additional fabric to allow for seams.
