I was originally going to make this awesome red corduroy with elephants into a pencil skirt.
I picked up a pattern that had modifications for “curvy” figures, and was feeling optimistic. Until I went to cut it out and realized I bought the wrong size. Der. So I improvised and made an A-line skirt using the Sewholic Cabmie pattern as a guide.
I cut a size 14 and then took it in enough that I should have cut a 12. Good to know for the next Cambie (the Liberty Cambie, which I’ve already posted about). I cut both the front and back on the fold, extended the waistband to make a tab closure. I moved the zipper from the back to the side seam. It came together really quickly. I like the fit and will be making more of these.
