Now that you’ve figured out the dimensions of your tiers, mark them out using your air-erase pen. You'll need a front and back for each tier. I’m marking:
T1 = 6 in. high by 24 in. wide (2 pieces)
T2 = 8 in. high by 40 in. wide (2 pieces)
T3 = 10 in. high by 80 in. wide (2 pieces)
Waaaaaiit a minute … I don’t know about you, but my fabric isn’t 80 in. wide. Unless you’re making your skirt out of a bedsheet, yours probably isn’t either. In that case, create T3 by piecing together two 10-by-40-inch pieces. (Or whatever your measurements are.) OK. Problem solved.
