This was the first time I used this pattern. I will definitely go down a size or two next time. The shoulders were too wide and I had fudge a bit to get them to fit. I didn’t want it tight, but there is a bit too much room in the armhole and chest area.
I attached the sleeves flat for the first time and I will never go back to the old way when using knits. It made it much easier to serge them on and as a result the inside is completely finished.
The pattern does not include the little cowl, but it’s easy enough to draft and add. I have so many more ideas for this basic little pattern.
Cool greys transition from summer to fall in a shirt dress, flowing maxi skirt, and new jackets.
