|The view I made (view E) is a loosely-fitting top with a cowl neck and similar draping throughout much of the bodice, with short fluttery sleeves. |
This pattern calls for a stretch knit, but I really wanted to make it in this beautiful orange chiffon I had. I decided to make a muslin out of a woven fabric first to see if the pattern could be adapted. I made the muslin in a size 12 (I'm usually a size 8-10) to make sure I had enough room to fit in it.
The pattern is actually very roomy. I ended up cutting it back down to a size 10 and still had plenty of room, even though I was using a woven fabric. I suspect I could have made it in a size 8 to begin with without trouble. This particular version was very pretty in my orange chiffon and I see no reason that a stretch is required. Because the pattern is supposed to be so loose-fitting, it is not hard to fit.
The instructions were overall easy to follow. There were a few minor details that I think the instructions overlooked (like tacking the cowl into place once it has been folded over), but overall it was a really easy project.
The shirt turned out really cute. I used it as the top of a sundress. I have pictures of the whole project and how I put it together on my blog! http://anelisemadeit.blogspot.com/2014/06/sunset-dress.html
Update: I posted a tutorial to my blog about how to make a square skirt that exactly matches your waist and length specifications! http://anelisemadeit.blogspot.com/2014/06/diy-customized-square-skirt-tutorial-in.html
