Size Matters

Or does it??? I know that’s what we hear a lot. But does it really? Have you ever found a pattern you really like, and get disappointed because it doesn’t come in your size? I know I have. Sometimes you move on to a new pattern. But sometimes it’s just one you really want…. That’s what I did! I love the Winter wear designs Trendy tank because of the low v- neck and the simple construction. I fit the bust measurements but I had to grade out for the hips. It was pretty simple. I subtracted the pattern measurements from my hip measurement and divided it by 4. That number is how many inches needed to be added to each piece.

I added 11/2 inches to each piece cut on the fold.Three inches on each side for a total of 6 inches added through the hips. I also added 4 inches in length to make a cute nighty…. with Valentine’s day around the corner I wanted something cute but slightly sexy lol!

I made the P4P summer kimono to complete my outfit. This cream and dust pink rayon spandex makes me want to stay in bed all day!

Hope it’s warmer on Valentine’s day 😊! Happy sewing!
