Yaaaaaaaaay I’ve finally finished a new look 6808 top after buying the pattern nearly a year ago.
Why so long you might ask? Well it took me this long to fit it properly.
I made four attempts. FOUR! Yeesh.
I worked out I’m a 8 around the neck, a 10 at the arm holes and bust, a 12 at the waist and a 14 at the hips.
Now I have the perfect fit though. I even added a centre back seam to help the fit.
I drafted the collar myself. I used the neck facings to work out the general size of the collar I needed and a french curve on the front collar pieces.
More details on my blog http://almondrock.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/new-look-6808-finally/
I used a purply-black poly micro-fibre fabric and some pink poly scraps I had for the collar and the sleeve lining.
