I had a total disaster with the zip and having to re-insert one -not to the colour of my liking - the fit is not too bad at all! For my previous Moss skirts the waist has been too big and the waistband too short. This time I graded the yokes in by a total of 1 inch which then seemed to make the waistband fit perfectly.
I've never graded before and I'm desperate the increase my skills in this area. I did lots of reading around but couldn't find anything on grading yokes for skirts. So I had a BIG think and my brain produced this...
(yes there are three lines on the left, one was drawn in error, oopsy!)
After checking fitting on my previous Moss I measured two 1/4 inch darts onto the yoke. I then folded the darts in. By the power of maths the combined yokes then reduce the fit in by 1 inch. I got such a better fit, although I still need to grade down a size at the waist.
The button was fun to put on too! A delve into the tool box for a hammer, much excitement!
