LadyHawke

For Conflation 2006

The other Kerri and I are to be Conflation's Jesters (two! At once! Unprecedented!) this year. This will be our costume for at least some of one night.

Just how tall is the standard model for commercial patterns, anyway?! Even taking into account the lowness of my waist (which does cause problems with patterns for fitted tops) this skirt pattern is LONG. Sheesh.

I am trying view C (the all white one in the picture) of Vogue 8003 and trying to figure out the best place(s) to shorten it. I am thinking 1 inch at the hips, then two inches from the bottom ruffle (since I don't think I have quite enough fabric.)
