Emily really only likes to wear dresses and skirts. Mostly I'm supportive of this but it is winter and while its not super cold here its still pretty cold. There are lots of patterns out there for ruffle pants and for scort type things but this is my take on combining the two.
For the skirt measure the front times 2 minus you seam allowance for the front upper skirt then do the same for the back. My front was 12in and the back was 12.5. Then multiply those numbers by 1.5 to get the lower tier measurements. Mark the front and back pieces so that you don't get them mixed up.
Pin the right side of the skirt to the wrong side of the pants and sew them together.
