This purple chardon skirt is a size 38 sewn with 3/8″ seam allowances, rather than 5/8″ seam allowances as instructed. I did this because my waist measurement is about 27.5″, and size 38’s waist measurement is 26.75″. However, the waist ended up looser than I liked, so I realized that just a regular size 38 worked well for me.
Even though this version is a little bit big around the waist, I’ve been wearing it a lot. I like it with my octopus tank and grampa cardi, hehe!
