Ina Skirt Tester PhotosBy Deepika on 8/25/14 4:05 PM

Our Ina Maxi Skirt is "flying" off the shelves and we're waiting anxiously to read your reviews. Did you love it as much as we did? But while we wait, I thought I'll provide some eye-candy in form of our tester Inas. Perhaps one (or all) of them will inspire you to make one. 

Nancy (Nan-Kay) couldn't just make one. She made FOUR! If I were to pick my favorite, it would be the ruffled Ina. 


Missoni fabric shines in Claire's Ina. And she inspired Connie to make hers in just one evening so they could wear it to a PR meetup!

 

Left to Right : Claire, Connie and Sue


Donna did a pattern mashup to create this lovely knee length Ina.

"I used the front/back (and waist facings) of the Meringue skirt for the top part, then just matched up the Ina front/back where the lower curve fit (a couple of inches below the
zipper)! I also shortened the godets, as suggested in the thread, by slashing and overlapping about 3 inches."

Don't have striped fabric? You don't need it! Twinset is rocking her Tie-Dye Ina! 

 

How was that for inspiration? I'll be back next week with more!

I have the Beta pattern cut out and taped, but understand that it is about a sz. 4. There was no directions page or pages. I think Nan mentioned some did come with her download version. Someone said something about "taking out the bump." what should I watch out for? Is there something I am missing? Sorry if these are dumb questions, I've just discovered and am totally new to all this fun stuff (I've purchased 3 colors of fabric --but no cutting or sewing yet!) If I just go ahead and invest in the paper pattern, I'm in between a L and an XL. Which do you think would be easier for me to work with? Everyone's skirts are so creative. You look smashing in yours, Deepika and Twimset's tie dye is inspiring. Kathkay

@MaggieSc, it should be enough as long as it has a little bit of stretch. You may consider sewing in clear elastic in the waistband for recovery. I am actually thinking of making one in grey cotton jersey and stenciling it.

@cikka: yes it's the same skirt. You downloaded the beta version, meaning the pattern was still in the development stage. There are some differences/improvements between the pattern you have and the final pattern now for sale, but it would be Deepika or Catina that could specifically point out what they are. I know the godet piece was changed (the little 'bump' removed) and also the waistband, but don't know exactly how the waistband has been altered (haven't received my pattern yet).

Is this the same skirt that was the subject of a recent thread? I had downloaded the pattern. What's the difference between that one and this one, please?

I am very short- 5'1" and have shorten the upper skirt part but am finding it difficult to know how to shorten the ruffle or lower skirt of the pattern. If I take out the 8" (which is how much I need to shorten it) on just the upper skirt I think it would make the upper skirt look out of proportion. Any help would be appreciated.

I was thinking it might be nice done in color block with 3-4 different colors. I guess 100% organic cotton jersey would not have enough stretch for this! am I correct?

Beautiful! When the eye is drawn down to the floor (Instead of ending at our usually unattractive knees) we all look thinner.

Beautiful skirt! The waistband might suit a slight V-shape at the front too.
