Yes. If you did as you described that's exactly what you will have seen.
What (I think) you say you did:
1. Resize the filesystem to fit the LV (no change!)
2. Resize the LV partition to make more space available
What you should have done:
1. Resize the LV partition to make more space available
2. Resize the filesystem to fit the LV
Since you have now already resized the LV partition, you only need to
resize the filesystem itself.
