How to Draft a Custom Hoop Skirt Pattern With the Exact Shape You Want. We're going to make our drawing to scale; that is, it will be drawn to the exact measurements we need, only smaller.

How to Draft a Custom Hoop Skirt Pattern With the Exact Shape You Want

For instance, you could draw it so that 1" = 1/4". If I am 65" tall and want to draw my figure in 1/4" scale I would draw it 16 1/4" tall.
