Well doesn’t this figure? The good news is that I made a muslin before I started laying the pattern out on the fabric, and the skirt actually fits beautifully out of the envelope. But… I laid everything out on my cutting table (using the muslin as the final pattern) and I realized, no matter how many ways I lay out the pattern, I can’t get three layers of chiffon out of the fabric. It’s 52 inches wide, not 60. That eight inches makes all the difference (doesn’t it always, ladies?). So I called Lace Star and talked with the owner. I’m sending her a swatch of the chiffon so she can send me an exact match. I’ll cut out the first two-and-a-half layers while I’m waiting.
So… how ya been?
