Here’s something I bet you don’t know about me: I want to be a seamstress – badly. The only hitch in my get along is that I don’t really know how to sew. I get these delusions of grandeur periodically, the most recent came upon me a few weeks ago. So far, I’ve produced a skirt and a pair of pants and to my shock, they both are wearable. So, with my confidence at an all time high, I started another skirt, navy blue with a pattern of white leaves, with a sort of flouncy bottom. The skirt bottom, not my bottom. Cutting and sewing went well, boosting my confidence a little more, BUT, on trying it on, it’s too small. Way too small. Dang. The pattern was the size I wear, seam allowances jibed. Does my backside have delusions of grandeur all its own? Do patterns run smaller than ready made? Any answers from seamstresses?
