Lydia shirt

Lydia pattern with a slight alteration. I found the neck quite big so I added a collar. I only had a little bit of fabric left so I improvised. It will be better next time. Even thought, I double check my measurements multiple times, I still found the finished product way to big.

Material Notes

Strech fabric

    I don’t think it was the stretch fabric, I had to take in the fabric in the bust area at least 4 inches but the waist only about 2 inches.

    The next one I try I will use a t-shirt I have to make sure the measurements are more precise.

    Cute collar. Other people have said theirs came out too big also. Mine was perfect, but my fabric was only slightly stretchy. I wonder if this is what gives some people the incorrect fit???
