wonky pattern matching is wonky

I've tried to pattern match this fabric on the back and side backs, and it continues to foil me. This is my best attempt thus far, and I'm still fairly displeased with it. I have, however, run out of fabric for these excessive attempts. So I have to accept this as is.

The right side back and back match fairly well.  My mess ups are far more obvious on the left side back. I'm hoping a lot of moving about will prevent anyone noticing it in person. I thought it would be easier to match since the pattern is not anywhere near as busy as others I have done in the past. HA! Oh well. At least my skirt panels match up!


  1. If it's any consolation, wonky pattern matching is totally period to do

    1. It is! It's kind of hard to remember that back in the day, people made the same sort of mistakes and had fitting issues they way we do today. It would be wonderful to live in a world where fabric isn't fiddly or doesn't randomly decide to do something unexpected or move. But I don't think that world ever existed!
