start of a skirt

start of skirt
This is a wool skirt I am making for myself if it works out how I like. If not I am felting it adding a zipper and giving it to one of my kids. Ok I have never made a skirt out of wool yarn. I know wool fabric keeps its shape well but I am wondering if wool yarn does too. Let me explain I was told that if you sit in a wool skirt for any length of time when you stand up the skirt may have a funny curve in it from being stretched while sitting. Is this true or not? If you know let me know. If it is I am defiantly felting it as that will turn it into a much more ridged fabric and this is a pretty loose knit currently. That should fix that problem and then one of my children would get it.


  1. If you line the skirt, then it is much less likely to cause a baggy seat - and the soft, cool lining will probably feel better against your skin

  2. I had several wool skirts my mom knitted for me when I was a kid. They were not lined and I wore them to school so I know I sat in them a lot! I don't remember any ballooning. They were A-line and I know to always pull up on pants/skirts a tad before sitting down. I hope it works out for you - I had forgotten about my wool skirts, but now I remember that I liked wearing them.
