During this round of testing the Miss Fern skirt, we really learned a lot about how much the fabric dictates the fit of this waistband. I'm going to point out the big areas of consideration and I have some general tips including a gathering video down below. Let's get into this.
Living where it snows eight months of the year means that warmth, comfort and style are often on our mind when designing.
