Usually their wares are more utilitarian, but not this time.
After taking measurements, I decided to dive in and make a 12 straight from the envelope – no changes or alterations.
Everything went swimmingly, until I tried it on. Those bright yellow flowers? Well… They ended up being very strategically placed. As in Stoplight Boobs. While I am not the most well endowed person, it’s still not a part of my anatomy I felt like calling attention to.
Thankfully, there was enough fabric left to re-cut the front, this time paying more attention to pattern placement. Ahem. I also did a slight FBA, about a 1/2 inch. Yes, a cut & slash FBA alteration on a pattern piece that is cut single. The result works, but looks a bit Frankenpattern, with all the bits taped together.
The plan is to wear this with black leggings, now that the weather is warming up.
