So I feel like a loser

Wow, there is nothing like getting all excited to cut out a new quilt, realize you want a fabric that you have planned for something for yourself (a skirt in this case) that you happen to have exactly how much yardage the pattern calls for so it needs to be cut first and then use scraps for the quilt, look at the pattern to see what size you should cut, measure yourself, measure again and try to figure out where all the smaller numbers on the tape went, look at the corresponding size on the pattern, see that it says you are 4 sizes bigger than you thought you were, and suddenly not want to do ANYTHING. (Wow, how's that for a run-on sentence?) I don't want to make that skirt, I don't want to cut a new quilt. You know what I want to do now? Eat ice cream. And miraculously shed all of that year old baby weight that never went away. AAAAAAA!!!

Sorry for the downer, I had to vent!!!

Well, a skirt 4 sizes bigger is better than a bra 4 sizes smaller.

BAH!

oh, on a more inquisitory note...

do you have a pattern for an A-line skirt? I can't find mine anywhere and am wondering if I imagined it. And McCalls had NO good A-line patterns this weekend. Nothing.

FYI: When you buy a pattern for a garment, you must go up at LEAST three sizes. Believe it or not, that is the rule of thumb for buying patterns. So, if you're a 6 (hate you), then you would buy at LEAST a 12. So don't feel bad.
