    @MehulAtharvMom

    I sewed this 8 by 3 of squares into this (folded rectangle to save space).

    Squares are 14" by 14" and sewed with 1/2 inch seam the squares appear 12" by 12".

    Everything is approximate .... Best to use self healing mat, circular cutter and sewing pins for accuracy for later projects.

    Now I realize length must be twice the width because when you fold over, it must make square.

    Had to cut lot of length .... My original maxi skirt is looking more like a midi skirt, 23"!

    Now I made

    1) Bias batting ... Roughly 2 inches wide (not perfect but great for practicing). This will be sewn into the waist part of skirt and will serve as the tie to wrap the skirt

    2) Created backing on reverse of skirt. Can reverse the skirt if desired.
