This pattern has ended up being more scotch tape than paper pattern but I think I finally got it to fit, at least it fits as good as I can made it. I had to slash the back and widen it a bit, allowing the back hemline to fall into the correct position and I had to add fabric in the belly area without adding to the width. Frankly, its still too wide in the hips, as you will see. This fabric is a very stiff twill so just imagine this in something a little more drapey. For the front, I slashed and spread about a foot down and added a second dart to close up the waistline. So now I have enough to cover my booty and the pot belly without anything being strained and pulling the side seams out of line. It was a long time coming and I thank God for cheap fabric at Wal-Mart!
