Ahhh, prints, how I love them. However, the beautiful cheery floral print belies the blood, sweat and tears that went into making this skirt! Here's a link to New Look 6594, and its tragically styled envelope front.
Silly me, making another too-big garment. So many foolish beginner mistakes were made! I realised it was too big halfway through construction but forged ahead with my head in the sand...Meaning I had to spend hours taking it in, and since I couldn't sacrifice my perfectly matched side seam....
|Where is it? *smug face*|
I had to taper the yoke adjustment down to nothing at the bottom of the yoke seam, i.e it is still a bit big at that point and gets a little wavy. Boo! But it's probably one of those things no-one will notice :)
So... yeah, never listen to the "recommended size" on the envelope... you will only be hurt. Measurements and muslins are your friend!
I took about 5.8cm (2.3 inches) out by the end, and next time I make it I think I'll even take more out.
Well here's another pic to cheer you up from my fitting woes. I love, love, LOVE that print!
