Yet another pattern adaptation, this one didn't take long though. It's geting easier each time.
I wanted to make a slightly floaty blouse in some loively floaty fabric. However, I chickened out of using my fabric, and made it in cheaper fabric instead. I'm glad I did.
Some things went really really well.
- This time, I decided to try a different construction method, and it worked.
- My coverstitching worked (mostly)
- The rainbow thread I used for the loopers on both the overlocker and the coverstitch worked (I love it, and I'm going to be orderig plenty more spools)
- The sizing was OK, if I'd been using the original fabric. I left the darts in, just didn't sew them , so this hgave me more wearing ease. It wasn't right with this fabric, I should have sewn the darts (I still might)
- The neckline I drew was far to hight for the style I was going for, and for the gathered neckline. However, it would work if I had used bust darts,
- I should have used hemming tape to give y hems a crisper edge.
I've got a few more things on 'let's try' list. Firstly, some relatively simple things:
- a squarer neckline, with a view to incorporating a top into a summer dress
- a slashed neckline
- Finish my empire line blueprint, and make a dress from it.
And go back and finish my trousers. And some leggings.
The list goes on.
