Yay! A simple hazel from Colette Patterns. And because Colette patterns sizing for the bust is really big, I made a muslim for this, altered the bust darts and took in 4cm from the sides. The altered bust darts made it a little pointy. First time doing this kind of alteration, not really sure whether is it correct or not. But other than the slight pointiness, the overall fit is much better.
