D_o_A, that's great!  I'd love to see pics.  If you have any questions, just ask.  I'd be happy to share how I did mine.  I have a couple comments. 

I used a round tablecloth for the wedge pieces.  So, I had to cut the circle into pie shaped pieces that did not line up with the grain of the fabirc.  Doing this may make you fabric stretch while sewing and can hang differently depending where you cut.  Mine was stiff enough to not be a big problem.  And, I was careful to pin and not to stretch as I was sewing.  The flannel skirt's seam itself also helps to keep the other pieces from distorting too much.  But, when I was done sewing, I had a little to trim off the bottom edge to make it completely even.  I used a ruler while my mom wore the skirt to make sure the skirt edge was level.  Just snipped off where needed.  You can tape the ruler to a cardboard box or other object so it is free standing.  A "body double" dressform is also great for skirt hems.

That's such a fun skirt! I'm sure no one will suspect it was a table cloth!   Smiley

Uber Domestic, I hope not!  That would be funny.  "Hey!  My granny had that tablecloth on her table!" 

Well, if we have a picnic, she can spread out her skirt for everyone to eat on.  LOL!

Great job on the skirt mieljolie!

One and half circle skirts never intimidated me. A choli, on the other hand, kicks my butt trying to get the fit just right.

Troublet, I'd agree with that.  I haven't made a choli from scratch, yet.  But, I did have to fit a couple I have in the past.  Though the more traditional style choli's were much easier to take in than I had expected.  I bought one that was really large and needed to sew up the arm and side.  Soon, I'll be trying to make one based on one of my existing ones.

If you can get your hands on a copy of the FCBD pattern, it's a bit easier to adjust. Smiley
