Hi jane , my waistline size is 28.5 but my hip size is 40 šŸ˜¬ How can I measure band size is waist or hip size .


Friday 14th of July 2023

@jane, how to you apply the strap do you weave it in and out through the top of band or at the bottom of the band? Thanks


Monday 11th of October 2021

Hi Ei, mm measure your hip then after u finish make a tie for secure the skirt.


Friday 2nd of April 2021

Iā€™m wondering how this would fit over the hips to get it on, is it that stretchy? My waist is 27ā€ and hips are 37ā€. Love the skirt very cute!


Tuesday 6th of April 2021

Hi Cheryl , sorry for reply late The skirt will fit for the hip because it stretchy from the crochet lace stitch.

Hi Jane, how many chains do you begin the rib that will go around your waist? You say 11 chains but that would be way too small and considering that you're folding the skirt in half to sew down the side. Unless you are working 11 chains for the thickness of the rib. Is that it?



Tuesday 16th of March 2021

HI Sylvie, I start with the ribbed band with 11 chain for the thickness of the band then we will crochet the ribbed that long enough to wrap around your waistline.


Thursday 15th of October 2020

Thanks Jane, you are the best šŸ‘šŸ¼ Enjoy your day


Wednesday 30th of September 2020

Hi Jane, I don't understand about 1 long tie chain is for the waist, where would I attach it to secure the waist? Thank you so much


Wednesday 30th of September 2020

Hi jackie you will chain enough for to wrap around your waist line then you will put the chain on the top edge of the ribbed band so when you wear the skirt will be secure and look perfect fit.
