Raglan sleeved. placket front, knit dress.
The sleeves have very cool poofy bits that don’t actually look much like the pattern illustration.
This wasn’t helped by the fact that I sewed this up in a stiff, low stretch knit.
Pattern:Patrones 272, No. 5 Vestido Schumacher
Fabric: Thick, low stretch, poly double knit (? hey, it’s a muslin, I used what I had XD)
Modifications: Shortened the waist by 2cm and when the poofy bits didn’t fit, removed their seam allowance +1.5 cm. Re-positioned the placket buttons after shortening.
