First Cashmerette Fail!
Hi Fran - we’re sorry this one didn’t work out! From our chat it sounds like the issue as a combo of the elastic not working well for you and some grading between sizes. Next time when you use elastic I highly recommend putting tissue paper underneath the fabric (as a bottom layer) - it really helps avoiding anything stretching out.
