I made this over a year ago, but then I didn’t wear it much and it kind of got lost in my closet. The pattern was a real struggle to fit properly. I must have taken it apart and put it back together at least 4 times, including redoing the collar and reshaping the shoulders Every time I fixed what I thought the problem was, it turned out that something else was wrong. I persevered because I liked the fabric, but in the end I kind of gave up and put the back tie on it because I still couldn’t get the back seams to look right.
Oh well. Good learning experience! And the end product is cute, albeit a bit quirky verging on clown-like. Looks good under a neutral blazer.
If anyone has suggestions for the Ute pattern, please let me know! I was wanting to make the other variation of it, but now I’m too scared to touch the pattern again.
