You'd have to have patience with me on this post as I share with you my attempt at getting a Roza blouse that'd fit me!
When I first saw the Roza blouse here, I just fell in love with the design by KateNRose. I had dreams of making a many versions of this top. I started off digging into my old quilting stash to start a wearable muslin which ended up as Version 1. I was really excited too as I managed to get a complimentary piece for the inset so off I speedily sewed.
The next day I decided to try something which was to go back to the pattern pieces and grade any sizing to do with the neckline from Large to Small. Back to diving into my old quilting stash. Here is a first fitting of Version 2.
All in all, it taught me to try new things in terms of altering a pattern. I still love the pattern, just not sure it's for me though. Time will tell!
In case you are wondering how on earth I am going to wear all these things (ha ha) I am making these as wearable muslins rather than just muslins. Sometimes I do the latter. There are pros and cons of each. Next year a lot of these will likely be donated to the Women's Shelter so I don't mind being "the crazy woman at her sewing machine"!
Have a lovely weekend!
