    Hi all- I am piecing the printed paper pieces and the back panel pieces are inches longer than the front or sides!! They join at 6A on top and 6B on the bottom. I reviewed all the pieces from the download and I seem to have the correct ones. Any thoughts as to what might be the problem or did anyone else run into this? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    I’ve assembled the pattern but I’m yet to make the skirt so my answer is thus qualified…

    I think the height difference is because the front of the skirt will have a separate waistband attached, whereas the back of the skirt will fold down to form it’s own waistband.

    Anyone who’s sewn one want to confirm?

    Lighting is right, the back panel piece is longer than the front, side pieces. The back will form a casing for the elastic to go through.

    Hi, just a note that I’ve edited the thread title to make it easier for other folks with the same question to find this thread.
