Another Filler-type Post

I told you recently that the pattern I made for my skirt will not fit the fabric - ON GRAIN:

Instead of trumpet-shaped pattern pieces, this skirt will be made with blocks and triangles.  The sewing terms are panels and godets.  The panels for my skirt will be rectangles, and the godets will be wedges with curved bottom edges.  My panels will not have darts, but my godets will be drafted as shown on this page.

Meanwhile, we've been enjoying the new motorcycle:

I will show the next steps of my skirt soon.
