I am puzzled, befuddled and bamboozled! I am sad and bereft. My beautiful Edwardian Skirt does not fit me! In fact, It came out INCHES too small. I am confused. And I want to cry. The pattern was for a 34 - 36 inch waist. Check. I followed all instructions and the 3/8ths inch seam allowances to the letter.
So, why oh why did the waist on the finished garment come out to 31.5 inches? It didn't even fit Betsy, my dress dummy, with all her dials dialed to the smallest possible numbers. Oh well. live and learn. I didn't think I needed to do a muslin for a skirt. I thought wrong! And it came out so awesome, too, and I can't even wear it.
Back to the drawing board... another restyle? A UFO? Or the Colette Meringue I cut a couple of weeks ago?
