I have 2 metres of retro looking fabric which I can just imagine as a circle skirt but….it’s only 45″ wide. So the pattern peice won’t fit on the fabric.
I have an idea which is to fold the pattern peice in half and make it shorter (kneelength) in order for it to fit the fabric.
(Not to scale)
Would this work? How should I alter the waistline?
Will it spoil the retro feel and make it too ‘modern’ by taking up the length so much?
Additional info. My waist is 71cm, I’m 5ft1″.
My original pattern only fits on fabric when the fabric isn’t folded.
The fabric is a woven 100% cotton.
