What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a good knit skirt block and my instructions should make the drafting easy. I've put a tutorial for on my blog: http://www.poldapop.com/2013/10/sewing-tutorial-curvy-color-block-ponte.html

does the middle block stretch too?

I've made it with a middle block that stretches and with a fabric that doesn't, and both have turned out well. When the middle block didn't stretch, I made the sides a bit larger, and I used only the stretch fabric for the waistband casing (although I think I could have used some of the woven in the waistband, too). You can see pictures of this here: http://www.poldapop.com/2014/03/quickie.html Let me know what you make!
