It's a face-full of tartan. It's way too much. I will never, ever wear it so I just don't want to finish it. Neither will I throw it out, though. Maybe I could cut it up and use it for bias strips, or patch pockets or something?

Even though I should have know this would happen, the width around my midriff just makes me look bigger. I think it's really unflattering. I made a size 18 with some modifications, namely cutting off a crescent from the front and back shoulder (I think I cut off too much), and a sway back adjustment. But they didn't seem to help a whole lot. If I make Scout again I will chop it off at the waist, add a three-quarter circle skirt and elastic to a waistband. In my mind the result is a slouchy but cute short dress.
