So I’m sick of frump. I’m good at it, but just bcause you’re good at something doesn’t mean you should do it. I mean, what if your talent lies in destroying things? Should you do it because you’re good at it?
Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
So… I found this pattern…
I started with the skirt. My body is such a strange shape that I needed to give it a shot.
I knew I didn’t need the full width (what a relief!) but I wanted my hips to have all the room they wanted while not bunching at my waist. And, considering that my rib cage is less than 2″ from my hip bone, I need all the help I can get.
I sewed the first seams on the normal stitching line. Mercifully, the skirt fell off. I then sewed another 5/8″ seam inside the side front panels. This almost solved the bagginess issue but not quite.
There was still that little issue of the waist being a smidge too big even once I added elastic. I wanted as little bunchiness there as possible so I eased in a bit on the side seams as well.
Finally, a skirt I’m ready to sew!
Here are my fabrics…
Won’t it be fabulous?
I can’t wait! More on it later!
