Preethi from WIDI shows how to make her Poltam skirt. It’s pleated on to a waistband at the front, but gathered on to elastic in the back. You can make it in any size. In fact, she gives a link to a calculator (in cm) that will help you determine the amount of fabric you need and the most appropriate cutting diagram to use. Her tutorial is geared toward beginner sewers, with each step actually a link to another page with in-depth instructions and lots of photos. Go to WIDI to get the tutorial.
