Today we walked the dogs. When we got back home, I pulled out my pattern. I decided to use Simplicity 2475 instead of the McCalls pattern I showed you yesterday. Partly because the pattern I really have is for a multi-length A-line skirt. Um, yea - not.
So, I tidied up the studio. Cleaned up the messes and set the jean jackets aside. I read through the instructions. Measured my hips sitting and standing.
And then, well then I did something I never do - I actually cut the tissue! I always trace - regardless of the pattern, it's so much easer to make changes and blend sizes that way. But this pattern wanted you to start with your actual hip measurement - so I did.
According to the pattern, I needed the biggest size - didn't really surprise me because - well I have hips, and bum.
Anyway - I pulled a small wale cordouroy from the cupboard (I'm loving cord right now). And set about cutting and sewing the pattern up. Well you can guess what happens next can't you?
