It’s ok, wearable, but I think it should be better. I will probably cut a piece of super heavy interfacing from the facing pieces and fuse it to the lining, then stitch it in place so the waistband sits properly. I want it to sit up rather than sag sadly. It also doesn’t hug my waist nicely, and I rather like my waist. Also there is some suspicious fullness below the hips, I think it looks funny. And finally, I don’t like the way the CF seam caves in between my legs like some misguided attempt at lace trimmed culottes. I think most of that will be fixed by the built in belt. I might shave some fullness off the bottom half of the side seams, too. That’s what I get for being clever with the ease and thinking I should go from a size 12 to a 16 when the straight 12 would probably have been fine.
Meanwhile I’m working on the bolero and a delightful Husband approved skirt made from the Butterick view A and some Burtonesque Trees Ikea fabric.
