Well, it’s lots more HURRAH and only a little bit of botheration really. With lots of exclamation marks and smiley faces and happy little jigs.
Ah, yes. It’d help if I told you what this was all about!
I had traced my beignet pattern and graded it as per my measurements from a couple of weeks ago. Well tonight I finally got round to making up a muslin of the skirt and dang me if it isn’t too big! And too big pretty much everywhere too! See – told you it was all about HURRAHs!
So I re-did my measurements and safe to say they are definitely smaller than what they were. Even after eating dinner. So I now need to do another muslin (hence the botheration) on a straight tracing of the pattern – no alterations should be required… So I now need to un-alter my traced pattern, pull apart my muslin, re-cut it and re-sew it.
You never know, I might actually then be able to cut my skirt out of the fashion fabric!
