Measure the length of the edge and decide ow many scalops you want. Toen you know how big the circle must be. Make a template (you van use a glass or something or a pair of compasses. Make a template and draw the circles on the skirt, toen cut it out. I used nailpolish to stop it from frizzing. I must admit that i cheated a bit, the scalops on the back are a little bit bigger... Good Luck and I'd love to see your version!
