McCalls 6713

Here is the result of McCalls 6713.  Blech.  :-(  Too short-waisted for me.  Or, maybe that's a design feature, but it's not a flattering one for me.  It isn't high enough to be empire-waist, but it's several inches above my natural waist.  Plus, it's too short.  Just not a hit. 

Anyway, I've been working on some other things, knitting and sewing, so I'm going to get back to them. :-)  That's all for now.

Not to be Captain Obvious here, little sis, but do you measure the pattern pieces or pin fit them before you start? I don't make Muslims, but I generally do one of those things. I'm about as short waisted as they come, and I often have to lengthen bodice pieces. Apparently McCalls slower was an Oompa Loompa.

*muslins, I meant muslins. Stupid autocorrect has me wading into the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Thanks, Diana. :-)

Hahaha, Kathryn. Anyway, yes Captain Obvious has already made a visit to my head and knocked it around a bit. I honestly very seldom have fitting issues, so I haven't pin fit or anything in a while. I think it's time to start again.
