I'm a wife, mom, and doctor. I'm occasionally inappropriate, frequently odd, but not weird yet....I don't think. Bugs Bunny said it best: "It is to laugh."

Who Needs a Laugh?
Well, here's the muslin thus far of McCall's 6283, which will be a full-length Mardi Gras dress. Full disclosure, right? Hey, that's kind of cute...uh...well...
Now to be fair, this is the 3rd bodice but the 1st skirt, so that's my excuse. I went from a 12 bodice to an 8, then had to add back an inch at the shoulder strap. Hmm, it's too tight below the bodice, and are those princess seams pulling off to the right (your left)? What the....? I'm thinking off-grain myself, people.
Jeez, this thing's too tight! Helluva swayback, made worse by being too tight over the hips. And the print does wacky things, obviously.
Yeah, I can't even pin up where the zipper goes on the side seam because it's so tight. How ridiculous to be a size 8 up top and needing more than a 12 below. But that's why we sew our own clothes, am I RIGHT?!
