I have been sewing  for myself for a while and have decided to make a few things to put in my friends store next week. I am going to be making a few skirts and some wrap pants, I don't know what sizes to make these, is there a good way to make one size fits all skirts, or how many inches around to make wrap skirts? also what is an good average length for skirts? What pre-made item sizes from your stores sell the most? Thanks for all the help,  - peace ----Dorrie

Ask your friend what sizes currently sell in her shop or have her make an observation on the average size of her customers. She should have some idea of at least those things. No point making large fitting things if her customers are upscale and in the thin to medium category.

I am not sure what that last sentence means, but I personally know several "upscale" curvy or bigger girls who are ALWAYS lamenting the lack of their size at high-end and/or independent boutiques. Something to think about.

I would ask your friend if he could maybe take a look at the inventory (or you could take a look, to save him the time, if he doesn't mind) and see what sizes sell out the fastest, and make those. And I find that a good average length for a skirt is at or just above the knee; older and younger women alike will wear them because you can dress it up or down as needed.
