planning is key - McCalls 5753

The skirt front is a nightmare. Yes. It's my fault for not checking the waist and hip width of the skirt before I cut it out. I drew a line along where the side seam should be.
Granted, I love the pocket detail - pictures to come - but the front waist is 3cm too narrow on both hips, making it 6 cm too narrow. The skirt back needs 2cm more to fit properly over my posterior.
I'll go back to the pattern and add the width to the middle of the skirt because the pocket detail will become very distorted. In the meantime, I'm going to cut out another skirt front and finish the dress - maybe.
