BWOF 1/2008, #108 pattern and an improvisation.
This is the pattern I have used many times, and made a lot of variations on it. This time I wanted to make a simple shirt, with a bib cut on bias. I was so sure the fit of the shirt was right, and therefore I didn’t try the shirt while sewing it, but only after is was completed. But – it turned out it was too tight in shoulders and bust (???). I don’t know what happened – I used the same size as I always did.
To save the blouse, I improvised a bit – I added a button closure inset, which gave enough ease to the bust and shoulders. I had to narrow the waist a bit. Due to the alteration and to make the shirt symmetric, I added 2 rows of buttons.
The shirt turned out nice, I think :).
