First, I want to thank all of you who’ve tried to help me solve my fitting woes. I’m about ready to give up. There is obviously something wrong with me, either physically or cognitively. A couple of you suggested Nancy Zieman’s Fitting Finesse book. I ordered it immediately, and I got it today. First order was to measure my front width. I read the instructions and measured very carefully. I got 15.” I check the chart and find that it corresponds to a size 18!!! Are you fucking serious???? Now, I’d have no problem being a size 18 if I actually was that size. Look back at my posts… there are many pictures of me. Do I look like an 18? I’m currently sewing a 12, which seems to fit everywhere but my arms/shoulder/occasional neckline.
Fuck it. I give up.
