This pattern is ok, but just not for me, so I gave it my mom. It works well for her, I think (and she does too).
I like the play with the stripes. That’s what made me sew this pattern in the first place. I also like the sleeve bands.
What I didn’t like about the end result is the totally unfitted fit of the garment. Now I wonder if it’d fitted better if I’d cut a size 42. But I don’t think I’ll bother trying.
And then when I tried it on, DH said I looked like I work in a fast-food chain we all know too well. So maybe I should’ve chosen stripes in another color than this vibrant red.
The pattern is from BWOF 4/2008, blouse 109
