I had really looked forward to this make. Pattern procured by B at my request a bit ago. Fabric chosen during my Goldhawk Road shopping adventure. I even had great fun making the ingenious little instruction booklet Paper Cut prints in their patterns!!! However, there were a few issues...not the least of which was poor fabric choice. Which makes me rather sad, as I picked this fabric out especially with this top in mind!!! Many sewists have noted a bit of an issue with the fit of the pattern itself, despite making some very lovely tops. This is one of my favorites: Gray All Day and her Coppelia cardi. Anyhow, after reading many posts about the fit being large and various other tips, I felt prepared to knock it out of the park! I cut the size small.
|But...do you see the trick required to make it look even this good?|
|Sew much better!!!|
|When sewing adventures go this crazy, you gotta laugh, right????|
|I think I'll try this pattern again, albeit with a fabric that is a great deal thinner with more stretch. But....still loving my 2016 make: Vogue's 9136 Cozy Coat|
