skirt piece on to black ribbon so pieces overlap slight.

Using a colored pencil and ruler, mark a grid on the pattern by connecting
grid lines around the edges. On a sheet of paper, mark a grid of 1-inch
squares or size given,
making the same number of squares as on the pattern. To do this, use
graph paper with 1-inch squares. In each square, draw the same lines
as in the corresponding square on the pattern. Another way to enlarge
is by using a photocopier.
