I am a novice sewer and I am working on Simplicity #8133; a wrap skirt. In the layout it shows the selvedge at the top and bottom; which imply that I need to fold the fabric from raw edge to raw edge for the selvedge to be at the top and bottom. However, my pattern piece is labeled Cut 1 and the layout on the side states “single thickness”. That said, does this mean I will not fold the fabric and simply cut the piece once making sure that the selvedge edges are at the top and bottom? Or does this mean I do fold the fabric with raw edges together with selvedge edges at top and bottom, cut once and end up with two pieces of the pattern piece? Hope this makes sense. I included some photos to help visualize what I am referring to.
you cut it on a single thickness without folding. I’m assuming you have a right skirt front and a left skirt front. So if you cut one of each, then you end up with a full front. Hope that makes sense! 🙂
