Pinstripes never photograph well. They are just high waisted side zip straight legged boring wonderful spring pants. But, apparently I'm not a Simplicity size 12. They are about 3/4 inch too small for me and 2 inches away from being comfortable. Grrrrr. The crotch fits okay as well as the backside so my big question for you is ---Would it be okay if I just added 1-1 1/2 inches on each outside seam? If it will work, I'm going to chevron the inset on both sides (which is sewing 3 foot straight lines 6 times after ripping them out--BORING) Which is why I can't make myself do this right now.
Next, we have the 3 tiered skirt:
|the zipper hasn't been inserted so the right side isn't actually high|
I'm writing a tutorial for this and it's turning out wonky. Yes, wonky. Don't get me wrong, the steps are all there-it's the execution that is suffering. I like to sew while I'm watching movies with my husband and as it gets later and later I care less and less. (I don't stay up past 10pm very well). My husband says that the wonkiness is part of why I like this skirt--and he's mostly right, but the top is wonky too, right under the yoke. Shoddy sewing, I know. Grrr. Not to mention the pants I scrapped sewing for my husband.
My mojo is just GONE, you know? What do I do? I need an easy, no fail pattern that will give me my sewing esteem back. Suggestions, Please, pretty please.
On another note, I am loving Me-Made-March! Loving it!
Here's the catch up:
|Me made circle skirt out of Christmas linen (shirred waist) , me made necklace|
|Butterick 5498 , me made necklace (anthro knockoff)|

Help me, please.
