Oh Denise if it fits perfectly in the hips use that one! You can always make the darts deeper to take up the 1.5". So what fabric are you using?

Denise Calhoun

I'm thinking linen. I have so much fabric in my stash from back in the day when I had a terrific dressmaker in the city. Or maybe a cotton fabric with a little Lycra. But linen is so wonderful in the summer . . .

Debi

Congrats on finishing your skirt! I can't wait to see it!

Gabriella

I have McCall 5082 and its super easy and looks great. Carolyn is right on the money, use the one with the right hip measurement and adjust the darts to fit your waist. Can't wait to see the Asian skirt!

The Empress

I would go with the one that fits the hips. That said, it's generally easier for me to grade up a 1/2" than to grade down by 1.5".

Gertie

Gosh, I don't think I've ever had a pattern fit me perfectly in the hips! Go with that! I bet if you took 3/8" off of each waist side and then tapered down to the hips with a French curve, you'd have a great fit. Let us know what you decide!
