You are exactly right! That's just what it did. The sides are very tall. There is a significant belly in the foot and head, before you get inside, but it disappears when you load the hammock.
I cut the material 60"X10.5' and put about a 6" deep full cut on each end.
Here is is with Thing1 inside... she's about 5'6" tall, and is swallowed up! In the last 2 pics, she is sitting up...
I do like a long hammock, though!
P.S. There is no cut across the leg... but I think that is because the hammock is long!
P.P.S. You could put velcro on the side edges, and make a sock hammock with this thing!
