1061



My past attempts at sewing for myself haven't always entered the public domain, as in they're still sitting in the wardrobe unworn and unloved.  This one, however, this one is a winner.

I know these patterns are supposed to be easy, but I haven't always found them so, but this time I'm a convert.  Probably only 2.5 hours of time to make, all up, but I traced pattern, cut out, then sewed over two days.  I measured myself and the pieces beforehand instead of just sewing blindly and it fits - actually fits across the shoulders and everywhere.

The idea is that tomorrow I'll find the perfect pair of chocolate brown tights to match and wear it all out to dinner with friends.  IF it all comes together AND there's a decent photo, I'll share it with you to see what you think.
