First things first, look how good my lemon tree looks! After the move, it lost every single leaf and then grew new, bigger, greener leaves. They are all avocado sized, which is probably 3 times bigger. I guess it hated the heat! I have it on the sun porch, where it will sit next to the radiator in the winter and keep it happy.
Time: 6 hours-ish
Fabric: Ponteroma knit
Notions: Buttons that I already had, brick red thread
Pattern: Vogue 8333
I think I am going to cut the pattern down to a 6 (the smallest size) and then pin it to my dummy and take up the shoulder and in on the sleeve and the side. I pinched it in while it was on, and it wouldn't even make the armhole tight. It is too loose!
In conclusion, it was good for practice. When I remake this pattern, I know that it will fit really well and look nice. The pattern itself is nicely made, especially the collar construction with a stand and when I do it right I left out all interfacing, the roll line, the lining, etc) and know it will fit, it will be worth it. I do recommend buying it if you can get it on sale for 3.99 like I did.
Anyways, you can mock me this time- THIS time... or leave helpful suggestions like "burn that in your backyard!"
