    My worst fitting problem is my flat backside. Most pants fit very loosely in the back and patterns are difficult for me to remove the extra fullness here. I usually end up making the pants too tight across the hips and that causes other issues with the hang of the pants.

  2. Cheryl Seal says:

    My worst fitting problem is my large waistline and a “roll” above the waist. I love fitted dresses and tops, but sincerely hate to see the dreaded roll around my middle. The only way I can seem to get rid of it is to wear my clothes just a little too large from the sleeves to the hips. It would be wonderful to wear a top or dress and feel comfortable without a sweater or jacket over it.
