When I traced the pattern pieces I made all the pieces for contrasting fabric size US14 and all the others size US16. Size 16 is what I used for my Ginger skirt, also from Colette patterns, so I thought it should be ok. And it was! I had my doubts when holding up the front skirt piece in front of me and it barely went from side to side, and I hadn't even put in the front pleats yet.... But somehow it turned out to be a great fit (when wearing shaping panties). So I guess I'll just finish the muslin and decide on the fabric for the "real thing". Exciting!
BTW, had some trouble with the midriff pieces, still not sure if I put them right or upside-down...
|Not the best photo, but just something to see that it actually fits me (even without shaping panties)...|
Bye for now,
