I have completed a muslin (in knit) of V8379. The pattern is as wonderful as everyone says. My problem is two-fold. (1) My fabric will be stretchy and will weight the bodice down. I have added stretch elastic to the skirt and widened the belt, both have helped slightly.
(2) I would like to reduce the circumference of the skirt to create less bulk at the hem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Sunshine ~ I looked back through just a few pattern reviews; Jessimaka details how she accomplished this in her review on 3/3/13. "I removed 36" from the skirt sweep. I slashed from the hem to the waist line 4 times on the front and 3 in the back and overlapped the sections decreased the fullness. I then altered the cutting layout to save fabric. I also cut the back skirt on the fold." I've bookmarked her review for the same reason.

Good luck!

Thank you so much for the great detective work in finding the review. I will definitely use that technique the next time I sew this pattern.
