|I am so sorry about how washed out some of these pics are. My camera is a dick and hates any and all lighting conditions. And me.|
Which took me the whole weekend to finish. *facepalm*
Pattern: Simplicity 2594, view E.
Size: I cut size 16, two sizes smaller than my body measurements. This garment has 7 inches of ease.
Fabric: Lightweight 100% polyester I bought who the heck knows when.
Alterations: NO FBA! So much ease. It appears that I did draft out some of the drape in the back. Thanks Past Heather, I appreciate that!
I made up this pattern a couple of years ago, in view B. I still have that top, and while I do wear it now and then, it's not a go to top because the cowl annoys the living crap outta me. But I like the loose fit of it, so I guess I thought view E would be a good choice.
I spent a very peaceful couple of hours this morning, lounging on the couch handsewing while the Boyfriend kept refilling my coffee. :)
Well, I may just wear this top on it's own this summer, because it is awfully pretty! Did I mention that I adore it? So so comfortable (despite the staticy cling), and so so adorable. Seriously, I need to find some really lightweight cotton to make some more. Although I really do want figure out how the lengthen the sleeves without sewing a rectangle to them. Don't like drop sleeves.
