I made it out of the huge leftover I had after finishing my fur vest. If I wouldn’t have made a musseline to test the pattern I drafted, I would have ran amok. [No, it wasn’t that bad, just joking ;) If I’m not sure about the pattern or drafted a new one, I’m always testing it first on some bedsheets – saftey first ;)]
It’s made out of 14 pieces (the middle ones are folded) and I wanted to have a ‘waistband’, which caused the most pattern trouble. It closes with a zipper at the back – a nice change :)
Another problem I had was my bust…I had to stitch two points of the neckline together, otherwise it wouldn’t have followed my body. But that’s no big deal, I think.
