In and out of dart fitting skirt?

zevvie | Posted in Fitting on

The dart fitted skirt seems to be missing an opening of some sort? I know I can’t just put that skirt over my head and still have it fit my waist. 🙂 Did I miss something? Please let me know if I am supposed to put in a zipper, or if an opening is already there but I missed it.

Thank you!

    Are you referring to the skirt in Threads Magazine....the gold one?

    There have been many posts about this and from memory there will be an update in the next issue...sorry I can't remember where Amber posted her comment.

      this question seems to have been raised before; on the "talk with Amber" post, but there was no answer as far as I can see http://forums.taunton.com/tp-gatherings/messages/?msg=5666.1 ( number : 5666.101 ) post number 101 to 103.

        Thanks for the specifics on where to find that info. i'm glad I am not the only one who was confused! It looks I'll need to wait for the letters section of 135 to get the answers. :-)

          In an early line of that article, it says that you leave a length of the waistline undarted in front, then it folds over and attaches at the side to close, creating a deep pleat. 

          Perhaps that's why I keep seeing it as an elegant bedspread wrapped around the model's middle!  The different length of the darts in the back of the other skirt seem bizarre, too.
