It just makes no sense to me...It is almost like patterns are cut at someones whim...Frankly today I made a muslin of a pattern that I bought for my granddaughters...xs...s...med...now I figure it's jammies I am makeing they don't have to be an exact fit...so I made the muslin using the med...will I am a little "fat" old lady with a bulging belly and when I saw those pants, I knew I could fit in them and slipped them on...yeppers...no problem at all except that they are actually baggy on me...Tonight I spent more than an hour ripping apart a pair of pants that I have been wearing...they are a good fit and I just give up on ever getting a good fitting pattern...I think that is my only salvation.
