When I made the skirt I added a couple of inches to the seems to allow for my plentiful hips, however it was unnecessary and now the fabulous pockets go round past the side seams. I have been meaning to make this 1950's skirt again and blog about how fabulous it is, it just hasn't happened yet. I always have a stack of projects lined up in my head half of which I don't get around to.
The 1970's top I made when I was breast feeding and it never fit my ample bosom. As a result I gave it to my sister. Now she is breast feeding and I get it back. You gotta love sisters. I will make one like this for myself though, or a halter neck dress.
