Knitted skirty question

If I wanted to knit a skirt with longies underneath using the Evie pattern, do I knit the longie and added the skirt after?

I've never knit that pattern, but that is how I would do it if I were going to make skirted longies

Yes, that is what I do. I either put a strand of yarn around the body or do a purl row where I want the skirt attached. Then once the longies are done I pick up the stitches and start the skirty.

She has a nice tutorial in the pattern on how to pick up stitches and where to start the skirt.

I like finishing the longies first because then I can use the remaining yarn on the skirt.
