Hey there! So, the other day I made a skirt – my first ing ever sewn, yay! – but it was, too big for me. Of course I made it work and still look presentable by using a bobby pin, but I wouldn’t want to do this forever. The thing is, while it was too big for my waist it did fit well around my hips. My hips are much wider and my butt is much bigger than my waist, so even when trying on clothes it’s harder for me to get these things on…
Well, now that I’m learning I decided to go out and buy some elastic, to make elastic waistbands for my future skirts. My question is, how to transfer my measurements to my clothes (I think that was a big problem for me too) , and then how to measure the elastic correctly so that it will stretch when I’m pulling the skit OVER MY HIPS, but then relax/tighten and sit comfortably when on my waist.
Sorry for the dumb questions, I really am a newbie! Haha, thanks in advance :)
