First Wearing Recap: Tango A

I wore the new Tango A skirt to work on Monday. Uh oh, too much ease. When you have 10 gores, sewing 1/4" seams vs. 3/8" seams really makes a difference--2-1/2" to be precise. Why do I do these things to myself??

So the past couple of evenings, I corrected the skirt by making deeper seams along several of the gores. It's now back to where it should have been all along. Dang, I hated ripping out that Loes Hinse method waistband! No, I didn't take out the hem, I just blended the new seam into the old one. All in all, it didn't take that long, but it's tedium.

However, that's how you learn, right?!?

I'm impressed by your equilibrium after having to redo those seams -- I like my learning to happen a bit more easily!

That wearability factor kicks in every time doesn't it?! Glad you got it fixed with a minimum amount of effort!
