In order for us to make your Mia skirt, you need to provide for us two measurements: your waist measurement and the skirt length measurement.
Please be sure to accurately measure yourself. If you have any questions on how to do this, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to help walk you through it.
Your waist measurement should be taken from where you want the skirt waistband to sit on your body. The style is meant to be worn higher on your body, so we suggest you measure your waist slightly above your belly button or at your narrowest point.
***I will add a 1/2 inch of ease to all waist measurements*** What does that mean? It means that if you select your waist measurement to be 35", the finished waist measurment on your garment will be 35.5". The extra half inch is to allow greater ease of movement, which is why in pattern making language it is called ease.
The skirt length measurement is how long your would like the skirt to be and should be taken from where you took your waist measurement to the spot where you'd like the hem to reach on your leg. The Mia skirt is designed to be a midi skirt, which means the hem should reach somewhere around your mid calf. You can choose a measurement that is anywhere between the bottom of your knee down to the top of your ankle.
***Please allow an allowance of plus or minus a 1/2" on your skirt length*** What does this mean? This means that if you select a 28" length, your skirt could be as short as 27.5" in length or 28.5" in length.
