    What I would do instead of cutting only one size from the pattern I would trace it on some gift tissue so I wont waste it.

  7. statia98 says:

    You may have to tape it for the big pieces.I think it's worth it because you can keep all the sizes.

  8. Hi Anita, just bought this pattern today to follow you but my waistline is 30 inches and hips are 42 inches will I cut the size 12 waistband and the size 6 skirt and will I have to gather the waistband in because it will be to big for the skirt please help I'm confused.
