Added Nov 13, 2010
This project started more than one year ago, then was lying around, unfinished, now it came to an end. It was not easy to get the checks right. I also had to alter the pattern a lot because my shoulders are size 42 (16) and the body growing to 44/46 (18). I had to shorten the bodice because I’m rather small. It’s a light crashed fabric, very loose-woven and very fraying. To proove whether it’s wool or not I washed a remnant piece with Jeans together at 60 centigrades and tumbled it dry. – Nothing happened (no pure wool!), it only smelled a bit like a wet dog (a little bit wool inside) and needed to be ironed.
I love how it came out, I think I’ll wear it often this winter.
