This beautiful print was a gift from my sister in Hawaii. To make a skirt out of a border print, the hem needs to be mostly straight as opposed to curved like an a-line or circle skirt. This New Look pattern #6843 is slightly a-line, but it still works. The print is curvy and varied so I laid the tissue pattern on top to eyeball the best placement. I didn't even try to match the side seams because I didn't want to waste any fabric and with the lively print, I don't think it matters!
The pattern called for darts, but I used gathers instead.
