First up, The Dress Shirt. I was really looking forward to seeing how this would sew up as I really like the look of it on the front of the pattern.
My initial finish last evening was a disaster. The little pleat up front looked horrible on my version, like I had a weird new appendage growing out of my abdomen! Argh! I tried fixing it last night but it was not cooperating. Note to self - don't try to fix problems at night! Even the photo won't cooperate for this post!
Then today, after I stitched up the lovely Top64, I tried fixing it again by inverting the pleat so now it is looking better. I am still not loving this but at least I can wear it without someone thinking I have the Alien thing going on! The Dress Shirt would really benefit from some pockets which I may still try to do!
Top 64. *sigh* Love it. It really is a lovely top and will be warm and cozy in the cooler months. I want to make more!
While I was really frustrated with my Dress shirt, including the instructions, what I can say about both pieces is that I love how the neckline and shoulders fit on me - absolutely wonderful!
I'm so focused on sewing that I almost missed my hair appointment today! If my hairdresser hadn't texted me that she'd me a bit late, I would've totally missed it!
What day is it?
It's sewing day, of course! ;-)
