My Hearts a Flutter--Version 1 is Complete
I've been working on this one in dribs and drabs. If I were a person who makes "wearable muslins", this would have been one. As I mentioned before, I cut the pieces for this top out of cotton that I'd previously used in an unsuccessful attempt at charity sewing. So objectively, the fabric is a bit too stiff for this pattern.
However, it did come out well. I traced a straight Medium and it's definitely wearable as is, even with the fabric I used. I do think I'll be adding a tiny bit of ease next time but it'll be an incredibly minor tweak. 1/8" per side seam is about as good as it gets, don't you think?
So yes, I 'll be making this shell again.
