this pattern immediately caught my eye when I first got the june magazine and I knew I would have to try it. figuring out what size (because it is a tall size pattern) didn’t seem a problem because I have done it before but I must have somehow mixed up the lines when copying the pattern as it didn’t fit at all and was quite a bit too tight. what to do now? didn’t have any more fabric to recut so the best I could think of was to add a small strip along the side seam which at least meant I could fit in it and close the zip, rather than throw it away. much to my disappointment my husband said it made me look fat and I am now thinking maybe it wasn’t worth rescuing?
