I found this vintage fabric at the Salvation Army for only a couple dollars, and loved the stripes. However, it was hell to work with. It’s the kind of fabric that runs like pantyhose, and matching the stripes down the side was horrible. I really wrestled with this pattern as well. It was oceans too big, which didn’t help the wide, low cut neck. It was difficult to take in because of the raglan sleeve. I took it apart and remade it about three times, before I gave up and changed the neckline by topstitching below the bust and sewing up the two front pieces. My only triumph was matching the stripes along the seams below the bust. I still love the stripes, though!!
