I'm working on New Look 6103, view A, a SuedeSays studio pattern. What is causing the waviness between my waist and hip on the side seams????
There are wrinkles across the skirt in that area, but I think that's from me sitting down in the skirt, and not necessarily because it's too tight in the hip (though...if it is too tight in the hip, would that make the bumpiness between waist and hip?)
The fabric is metro stretch denim from Joann's, a lightweight denim with some crosswise stretch to it.... The pattern does not call for stretch fabrics but I thought I could get away with it?
I cut the 14 but it seemed too big when I basted as a 14, so I basted it in as if it were a 12. I haven't cut any of the side seam allowances. When it was a 14, it seemed rippled and too big...now it seems to be the right size but rippled?
Also what do you think of the length? It is not hemmed yet...
The length is supposed to be below the knee:
Here are some more pix:
It has a really neat pleated kickpleat detail which I will try to photograph next time.
Any advice is appreciated!
