OK, I am really trying to do 2 things- update my style and sew clothes that fit. As we all know, from watching TV shows like What Not To Wear, there will be tears. Just kidding. Or maybe not. I am just like most of my bloggin friends - I am getting older and the body does what it will.
OK enuf rambling- I sewed the Christine Jonson Princess Seam top. I cut between a Med and a Large and that worked perfectly. I added a half inch for a rounded upper back and I moved the shoulder seams a half inch forward. I moved the sleeve cap a little forward, too. That's it.
I figured the stretch fabric ought to forgive any other fitting issues.
How often can you sew a top (first time using that pattern, too!) and wear it the next day? Um, like never!! SO I am very pleased. I will sew this again with more adjustment to the neckline... and I will write a review on patternreview.com where I get so much valuable info. Must make time to give back, too!
Since I am looking for feedback on updating my style and fitting adjustments, give me your thoughts- don't hold back if it is not positive. I want the unadorned truth and I am not scheduled to go on What Not To Wear any time soon.
