My first “pattern-sewn” piece of clothing, hooray! I used the Lydia pattern without sleeves, and with a non-stretch fabric. I modified the neckline a bit, after struggling quite some time trying to make a nice rounded neckline with a non-elastic fabric… and I made darts on the front for a slightly closer fit.
