I am about to give up on all of this. I have been sewing for about 2 years now and I have NOTHING to show for it, not one thing fits well enough to wear, I can’t even get a simple skirt to look right. What is wrong with this skirt? The front is lower than the back, it makes me look like I am always leaning forward. The pattern looks ok, its only when the skirt is on me does it dip in front. I followed the Sandra Betzina technique and added to the waste height at the front and it got even worse, so then I did the opposite which made the hem even but the front waist is scooped out. The skirt I am showing is right from the pattern, my adjustments were made to another skirt of the same pattern where I tried to correct the problem you see here. I also have made shirts which stick out in front but that will be another post and set of pictures. Why does no one teach fitting? No wonder people give up on sewing garments and go to quilting. Please help! And don’t be afraid of offending me, I know I am fat, that’s one reason I wanted to swe, so I could make things that fit my rounded form.
