Fabric Contraction is important!

Preparing your fabric for cutting requires washing it. By doing so, you will preshrink the fabric, and any excess colouring will be removed. As a result, your garment remains true to size once it has been sewed and won't downsize after the initial wash.

Finished Garment Measurments

The perfect garment is one that fits you perfectly. But how do you know what size to make? Body measurements are a great starting point, but they don't always tell the whole story - different styles can fit differently, even in the same size. That's why it's always helpful to refer to a finished garment measurements table when trying to determine the best size for your sewing project. The table below list the dimensions of the skirt in its finished state, so you can get a better idea of how it will actually fit. With this information in hand, you can make sure that the clothes you sew will fit you just the way you want them to.
