Slight issues with skirt
I sewed Simplicity 5524 except for the waist facing. I had cut it out in a 14 because all the 16 things I used recently were too large and needed altering back down. Ha! The 14 initially fit like a sausage skin - not a flattering look, fortunately 5524 has loads of seams so I was able to let out the two front and two back seams by ripping out and resewing at 3/8" instead of 5/8" and gained myself 2" all round which is much better. I left the side seams as the zip had gone in so neatly I didn't want to mess with it.
