Thank you so much annaskapa, for taking the time to comment on my Muslin. Two reasons why I put up my photos have now been achieved. The first that Suzy can advise me with an experienced eye to show me what to look for and how to fix it, and the second to help others like yourself who want to take the time to learn by my mistakes (i do what you do too). I have finally broken through the glass ceiling of pattern drafting that has been bothering me for years! My a line skirt (photos to be put up after this post) went together far easier than any bought paper pattern that I have sewn up before. It is great to have that eureka moment!
