This is my pattern, one of my 1.99 sale patterns:
I made the blue version, minus the contrast waist. I cut out an 8, which fits like a glove. You can also note my pattern storage technique- freezer size ziplock bags, so that I don't have to refold the pieces I ironed out flat. Well for vintage patterns, I iron them. My theory is that I shouldn't zip them all the way closed because it is too humid here, what if they started to mildew in their plastic baggies? Then I would cry and whine, whine and cry.Forced photo shoot on the way home from sushi in front of a statue on Esplanade. I don't have a tail, that is my sweater.
The back is nice, just a scoop neck. It covers up the bra straps, so I'm happy. I really like the fabric. The print is so random that you can't tell that the skirt is eight little pieces to give it the floaty bell shape.
Oh, the fabric is rayon. I like rayon! Super easy to work with!
Overall, it is very pretty, floaty and summery. I really like it. I had to add some darts coming down from the neckline because of the outrageous gaping at the front. But now the right side look fine, but my left side is going for a nice pointy cone-boob look. Any suggestions on how to fix that? It's tacky. I guess I will just pick out the dart and reposition it until it looks ok?
Overall, I am happy.
