Customer Questions and Answers
I have not made this pattern but have been interested. My hesitation is that the skirt doesn't seem to lie smoothly across the small of the back. This can happen if the person wearing the garment is a little bit sway backed. Do the instructions contain detailed enough instructions to construct this skirt without getting the wrinkles across the top of the skirt in the back?
Hello, Thanks for your question. Our patterns are easy to adjust for all body types and come with 1 to 1 fit and sewing advice with our in-house seamstress. So help is available to get the best fit for you :)
This pattern is a bit short and I'd like to make a below knee length, will it work if I follow the line and extend the pattern length several inches?
First let me say, I have finished this project and like the outcome just fine. I gave it 4 stars for a couple little things I will explain below. 1. Link in PDF to instructions should be blog.fabrics-store.com/2018/09/12/ida-bias-wrap-skirt-tutorial/ 2. For the band, I put it together as instructed BUT then when I tried to sew it long-ways (tops together) I just could not get the seams to align so I took it apart and sewed the tops together first and then the short sides with the ties and loops and got much better results. 3. I put an extra tie at the end instead of a button because I like a little give in my clothing and the button was likely going to get pulled off. I used the same technique as the loop but made it a little longer than 12", sewing the folded side into the seem allowing 2 ties to dangle out, knotting the ends to tie through loop like a robe. 4. The skirt ended up being about 1" too long at each seam so I sewed from the end, inwards, stopped at the seam, pinned it. Sewed from the other end, inwards, pinned it, sewed the middle, direction didn't matter, up to the pinned skirt seams and altered the side seams the entire length of the skirt about an 1" evenly all the way down. Then I sewed those seams into the band like instructed. 4. My fronts don't align as in the flap corners stick out the bottom because I have a little front girth. I plan on altering the bottom hems later to rectify that. All together I like this wrap and it is comfortable. I plan on making more of these in the future. Thanks for the patterns, they are lovely. And I hope my comments come off as helpful to others. xx
