I cut the waist piece starting at the waistline and measuring down four inches. If I make this kind of seaming again, I'll put the waistline in the middle of the piece. I kind of figured that when I cut the piece this time, but for some reason didn't want to be bothered, although I don't understand what I was thinking. Measuring two inches up and two inches down isn't that much harder than measuring four inches down!
I added a collar for kicks, but attached it wrong and think I will take it off before I wear this again. Then again, I didn't bother to unpick a row of wobbly top stitching and simply stitched over it, so I may just wear this on those days when I plan to stay in the house, but want to be dressed decently should I need to run an errand. I did wear this to work once, but unless that collar goes, I don't expect it to happen again.
Basically, I put a lot of work into this and was bored by the time I finished. Also, even though I tried to secure all raw edgers, after one washing, I can see that the curtain fabric will quickly fray.
The sheet fabric on the inside - that I love! It's so soft; I keep running my hands over it, wishing it was a darker color so that it would look better on me if I wore it on the outside.
