10 points to anyone who can identify the problem here:
But we'll go by the honour system, because I'm going to tell you anyway: why on earth would I make another skirt that sits on my natural waistline? Fail, fail,fail. I checked the measurement chart and traced the pattern, grading from a 10 in the waist to an 8 in the hips (which worked out perfectly), without ever pausing to consider the relatively-high-waisted-ness! Silly me.
Clearly I should have gone up a size or two in order to allow for the skirt to sit lower. After letting out some seams and playing with the closure in the back, I'm thinking I need about 2 more inches of ease for it to sit where I want it to. The only trouble is, one size up adds 1.5", and two sizes up adds 3". Which to do?
I suppose the larger, and then I can simply take it in, rather than having to mess around adding tissue to pattern pieces? Or maybe I'll like that extra inch of ease after all? Probably wise, as I don't have the fabric or patience to cut a second muslin.
Regardless, how cute is this pattern? And how fun to sew? Love it!
