Re: What's on your sewing plate for spring?

I am thinking, lots of sundresses, linen trousers, pencil skirts, and lightweight blouses. I plan on using lots of pinks and slate grays.

Re: What is your greatest fitting challenge?

I have wide hips and a very small waist so pants NEVER fit properly. I have to adjust the waist but still leave room to et over my hips. Its a nightmare. I have not mastered how to get a good fit in pants without using strecthy fabrics, any suggestions?
