 Both hancock fabrics and hobby lobby have 99 cent pattern sales. There is usually a limit to how many you can buy, but they have patterns for everything- doll clothes, civil war era undies, slipcovers, and of course anything you wanna wear. It's taken me a while to be able to read patterns but I am getting much better. BTW- If anyone knows anything about interfacing, I have a question. If I attach interfacing to a stretchy fabric, will it stay stretchy?

I used McCall's pattern 5474. I bought this pattern because the skirt was the right length and it had a yoke. I now have a flawless yoke that I can attach any skirt to.

This was clearance fabric from last year. I don't think I will have to limit this skirt to just St Patrick's. Do you?

Please ignore the purple shirt. That's what i was sleeping in.

I used view A, yoke and gathered skirt, but I used a knit waistband so I wouldn't have to set a zipper. I can't find my zipper foot.

I think you could definitely wear this skirt past St. Patrick's Day. 
If you put interfacing on a stretch fabric, it won't stretch without tearing the interfacing.

Kittenana- is there a way to stiffen stretch fabric with something else, or is that just one of it's limitations. I'm asking because the waistband is so light weight that i am afraid it will roll and lose shape as soon as i wear it.

.Very cute! Hmm, the spirit of interfacing is to sew in a stiffer fabric, so maybe if you found a slightly more heavy-duty stretch fabric and sewed that in instead? It'll make your waistband a bit more bulky depending on the fabric used, but it'll do the job. Or a stretch lace on top might help.

Never give your reasons, for your judgement will probably be right, but your reasons almost certainly will be wrong.

cool. thanks. I just grabbed what was nearby at the time. next time, maybe a little more planning is in order. and i have never used stretch lace. i'm heading out to get some tomorrow.
