This project was overall easy to follow and construct. There is a bit of handstitching to do for the bodice, which caused some procrastination. I used a twin needle for the hem – I find that gives a much nicer finish on knits. The bodice is underlined and lined, so there is a lot of material going on, but it ended up giving a snug, supportive fit. Just a peak at the finished project, but better than nothing. This pattern is out of print now, but I definitely recommend it.
Cotton knit purchased from Mood :)
