Challenge to Self: Uh-oh.

Pattern runs large.

4:00 PM

I have discovered that this pattern runs large!

Although I made the suggested size for my hip and waist measurements, clearly it doesn’t fit. I wondered whether the finished hip measurement wasn’t a bit big for me . . . but I was worried that if I cut a size smaller, I would have too little extra fabric to adjust the fit.

Nope. I would have been fine.

Looks like I will have to take in every seam, perhaps by as much as 1/2″. I hope that won’t distort the skirt too badly.

I hate to pause on a down note, but as I mentioned in my last post, I have company to prepare for. I will have to come back to this later . . . if not tonight, then on Sunday.
