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.
Day 22 is Simplicity 1882, from the Amazing Fit line.
