Moss Skirt Shortage

So I had in my head I had how I would whip up Grainline Studios Moss Skirt and write a fabulous post about it but it seems I've been thwarted by the waistband!

I conquered my first fly, woo get me! (excuse finger in shot!) but just can't understand what is going wrong with the waistband.  It's a good 2-3inches short!  I checked I cut the pattern correctly, checked the cutting instructions and tried pinning and re-pinning in various positions but nothing seems to work. Any advice would be gratefully received!! 
I'm so close to finishing this super cute little number I can almost feel the brush of the corduroy!

Please help!!


  1. This sounds so familiar. It seems like this happens to me no matter what I'm sewing... bits that just don't seem right. I always bodge it because I'm lazy, but then wonder why I have so many unwearable items! Sorry, this comment hasn't helped at all... but I'm crossing my fingers for ya! :)

  2. I think that there's a mistake in the pattern as others have said the same thing. Cut yourself a longer waistband.

    1. Thanks that's good to know. Jan kindly sent me instructions on how to lengthen it.
