Hello! I’m a novice trying to learn how to sew with the Burda Style book. If anybody else has this book and has made this skirt, I would really appreciate some advice…
I am working on the Miho variation of the skirt on page 74.
However I am confused by the waistband.
I cut a piece of fabric that is 3.5" in height for the waist band (2.5" + .5" on top and on bottom for a seam allowance)
My elastic is 2" height. In the directions, its worded as if the waist band fabric can cover the elastic completely – but it seems my waist band fabric is too short to cover the elastic.
I feel as if for my waistband fabric to completely cover the elastic, it would need to be at least 4" in height. But the directions clearly state 2.5". The “cut on fold” part is on the side of the fabric that makes it longer, not wider.
In the drawing #3, the waistband fabric is super tall compared to the elastic fabric – mine doesn’t look like that.
So, I am confused, should my waistband fabric cover the elastic completely? Or not? What am I missing here/did wrong? I hope my question made sense – if not, i’ll try to reword it.
Thank you for any help,
