Pumpkins are apropos for this time of year, no?
It's a fairly heavy fabric and more able to mimic the wool/cashmere blend I'll be using for the real deal. I started out cutting the size 18 since I thought the 16 would be just too fitted for me, it just wasn't the case. When I made it up, the 18 just looked baggy in the shoulder area on me so I re-cut the pieces down to a 16 for the upper body, out to my more normal 18-20 for the hips. I was so worried my normal 16 would be "too fitted" I caused myself extra work.
Have you ever done that? Sigh.
My manikin Ruby is just a touch smaller than I am and there's no help in the photo dept so you'll just have to make do with manikin pictures. LOL. I don't know if I want pictures floating around the internet with me wearing pumpkin fabric anyway. LOL.
