My daughter would like to make a skirt similar to ones she owns: pull-on - without a zipper - for a very stable knit like a ponte or even a stretchy woven with lots of spandex. This style doesn't use the usual narrow elastic with the bulkier waistband, but rather a wider yoke w/o waistband (so not gathering at the waist) and sometimes has 3 gores below the yoke on both front and back. Hope this description makes sense. I've searched the pattern catalogs of the Big 4 and other companies with no luck. Help??

Maybe the Polkadot Overload tutorial? You'd have to split the skirt part into gores, though.

Thank you all for your posts. Style Arc was the one company I didn't check.

She is a beginner, so I think having a pattern would be more helpful than a tutorial, but I did save that for future use.

thanks again!
