MMM 2013 Days 20-22

Day 20 is my second attempt at Jasmine from Colette Patterns.  I want to like this pattern, really I do.  It’s still not perfect.  Changes I made from my first one, released the above the waist petite adjustment 0.5 an inch and take up the same amount through the upperchest.  This improves the fit a lot, but I still think the armscye needs to be raised a little more.  I also think it could use a narrow shoulder adjustment.  That being said, I like the finished top.  I generally stay away from solid white tops, as I am known to spill coffee, tea and all manner of other consumables on my shirt, but I do believe at least one white top should be in every woman’s wardrobe.

Day 21 is a cafepress t-shirt and a Hollywood 794 skirt.  I also made the hat, but I’m not ready to blog it yet.  It’s from an indie designer on Etsy.  Because I have a lot of hat making experience, I didn’t read the instructions until I was done.  She specifically says the hat was designed for thick fabric and a thinner fabric would require a larger seam allowance to fit.  I made it in linen with a cotton lining, so it came out way too big and it’s my fault, not the pattern.
