Full Buckle Conversions

These can be done from as little as 2.5 metres of wrap, with a small pattern repeat but will need to be longer if it has a large bold pattern or you would like an extra such as a hood. If you have a smaller sized wrap and you are unsure if it will be long enough for a full buckle then please get in touch and we can let you know. Dress size is not an issue with full buckle conversions as they adjust via the webbing and buckles.

Meh Dai Conversions

Meh Dai conversions need a minimum of 4.5 metres of fabric due to the length of the shoulder straps.

Half Buckle Conversions

These need a minimum of 4 metres of fabric due to the length of the shoulder straps so you would need at least a size 5/6 wrap for a complete conversion. If your wrap is shorter but you would like this type of carrier then your wrap could be used for the body panel and coordinating fabrics can be provided for the straps.

Ring Sling Conversions

Ring Slings can be made with as little as 1.7metres of fabric so any wrap from size 1 – 8 would be suitable however dress size should be taken into account and a taller/larger person could need up to 2.5 meters.

Chop & Hem Wrap Alterations

We can chop a long wrap into two shorter wraps or a shorter wrap and a ring sling depending on the length of the wrap you have.
 

If you would like a shorter wrap converting to a ring sling and have a piece left over why not use this as a panel on a Melliapis wrap conversion carrier?

If you have a wrap scrap that you would like hemming we charge £4 to re-hem the taper or £1 per metre if it is unhemmed along the rails.

Please contact me to arrange alteration of your wrap.

To chop a long wrap into a shorter wrap and move the middle markers £8

To chop a long wrap into a shorter wrap and a ring sling £26

Return postage is charged at cost
