I can't believe how long it took me to downscale a skirt pattern from size 5/6 measurements to size 2/3 measurements.
Being all scientific I was sure that it could be done with a calculator and my jotter pad. I made a lot of crazy calculations over the space of 12 hours, both in centimeters and inches (go figure why I was doing that, I don't DO inches). Then when I thought I had the answer I used the "phone a friend" option and asked her to measure up her almost two year old. My little model had a waist measurement of 50cm (vs. my 48cm calculation) and a waist to knee measurement of 28cm (I was spot on, yeah baby!).
Enough of this mathematics caper. Tomorrow: fabric!
