Sorry, couldn't resist. I finished my KnipMode skirt and it is too big.
I learned a lot making this skirt: it was my first try at tracing a magazine pattern and that went smoothly. I'm not afraid to trace anymore. I even got by on the Dutch instructions, although I had a bit of trouble with the prepositions--is that stitch on the seam or stitch to the seam? I had a good time topstitching it on my old Singer 15-91.
But I messed up the topstitching by switching from one width for the horizontal stitching to another for the vertical due to complicated thought processes best not reproduced, but I can see that the various pieces come together as they should and would look pretty swell if the topstitching matched.
But it's huge. This is particularly ironic because I stopped in the middle of making this skirt to whip up another Vogue 8151 top, a size larger than the last one and in a stretchier jersey, but still too small.
I have concluded, in part from looking at myself in MMM'11 pix, that I should wear more fitted clothing, but I can't very well make them as long as I'm so totally delusional about the size of my body! Oh, well, live and learn.
