I followed Jo's instructions to correct the size of my mockup with a couple of exceptions:
A) She pointed out that I had added seam allowance to the edge of the lacing strips in the center back, which I didn't think I had done, so I took that out and that saved me 2 inches right there. The mockup now had a 30-inch waist.
B) I did the 1/4-inch seam in the middle of each panel except for the center front panels. So four panels per side, 1/4" off each one, gave me two inches on each side. So, I took a total of 4" off the rest of the mockup. Total of 6" eliminated.
I hope that it won't mess things up since I left the center front panels the same size as before. It probably will mess things up.
Here's the re-sized mockup:
Tomorrow I'll work on the lacing strips.
