Hello! I am currently in the process of making my wedding dress and chose to use McCall’s M7320.
I cut out the size 8 - on the pattern packet, it states this is a waist size of 24". I cut out the pattern pieces for the size 8 (I double and triple checked the right lines were cut out) and checked that I’d cut the right ones on the fold, and cut the right amount of each panel.
It was massively too big! I have gone back and measured the waist of each pattern piece, doubled the number where I have to cut on fold, or cut two, and the total is 35.5" - 11.5" bigger than it should be. I don’t generally like working with patterns but felt like it would be the “safer” option - do they ever have printing errors? The only thing I can think of is the larger size set was printed as the smaller sizes.
Any ideas on what’s happened - even if it’s something I’ve done wrong (I can’t work out what) I just want to know! I have emailed McCall’s to see if they know of a printing error. Someone on my local FB sewing group has said she used the pattern before and had the same issue!
