The Contoured Waistband Simplicity 1783
I knock around in Banana Republic skirts and shorts most days. I really need some more casual skirts so when this Cynthia Rowley pattern popped up I jumped at it.
You almost don't see the skirt option on the pattern envelope.
Then realized it has the contoured waist.
I decided to create a muslin, crazy right? It's such a simple skirt why would you do that?
Primarily because every contour waistband I've ever made with one exception has given me a peak at the side seam.
So I marked the muslin with the stitching line and popped the skirt on the form.
Here's the skirt section only without the waistband.
Looks fabulous so far.... so here comes the waist band
The dark navy is the original pattern, and the red is the new waistband seamline.
Here we are finished marking, and below the changes that need to be made before I cut the garment.
