Okay--I followed all directions and things were humming along; until ... . Here's the problem:
I was very careful to trace off the pattern pieces onto tissue, but as you can see, the lengths of the two pieces are not even. I did everything the pattern said to do: Used a 5/8" seam to attach the front skirt to the front bodice and used a 3/8" seam to attach the back facing to the back skirt, and this is the result at the side seams. It is time to place the contrast band on the bottom of the skirt, BUT--the skirt front, which is on the left in the photo, says to use a 5/8" seam allowance, while the skirt back, which is on the right in the photo, says to use a 3/8" seam allowance. This is just wacky! I'm thinking the only thing to do is place the band edge on the shorter front skirt and follow it around the back skirt, ignoring the extra length, so that the front and back skirts are even. Does anyone else have a better idea?? Does anyone know how to contact Bunny??? I'm breaking for the night and will pick up tomorrow sometime after church.
