So after my last post where I told you I made a skirt but it didn’t fit, The Perfect Nose (sorry, I don’t know your “real” name ;-)) commented that it would be useful if I showed a photograph of myself wearing the skirt so people could advise me on how to improve it for a better fit. I roped Gman into photographing me (which may explain the strange angle that makes me seem very broad shouldered ;-)) and here I am, from the front, the side & the back:
I think my problem with is it is that it is not only A shaped from side to side, but also from front to back (does that make any sense?!) I don’t like the way the material sort of sticks out in the middle at the front. Maybe it’s just my pot belly, or the fact that my bum is so flat?!
But if any of you experienced garment-sewing folks can see a way to remedy it to make it look right, your advice would be very much appreciated 🙂
