I have a very simple A line skirt pattern however I would like to alter to include a yoke.

If I copy just the top 15cm of the pattern piece, pin the darts of the pattern together and then cut out the fabric (so the yoke has no darts), should this work?

Yes you have the basic idea. This is how a yoke is drafted and I've done this many times before. The only consideration is how long the darts are. If they are shorter or longer than 15cms you need to take this into consideration when you close the darts.

The only way to learn is to have a go. Cut your first yoke in calico so you can test it, before committing to the good fabric. Good luck!

Thanks for that.
I just picked 15cm as a random length. I'm assuming it would be best to cut across at the bottom of the darts or lower? (obviously not through the darts)

I opened a Butterick pattern that I had had and not opened for probably two years. The pattern pieces for the skirt omitted the yoke. The top of the skirt where it would meet the yoke measures about 50 inches and my daughter's waist is 30 inches. Any suggestions on how wide and the circumference to make this yoke, and do I angle it to get narrower toward the waist? I have two inch elastic I was going to use.
