    For my textiles class I have to make a garment for someone. I have chosen to make a skirt for my younger sister but I’m not sure how much fabric to buy. Her waist is 54.5cm; hips 64 cm and the length of the skirt should be 35.5cm. Are there any other measurements I need to consider? And roughly how much fabric should I buy?

    Only thing I will say (since I'm not an expert) is it's better to have too much than not enough.
