|yeah! hey that's me in the centre with the red hanky isn't it?|
|nah. I don't hate it but wouldn't buy it, you know?|
The fit was not bad; I loosened a little into the seam allowances around the hips but that's all.
I was slightly concerned about the shapeless bag potential of this pattern on me and I think, suspicions confirmed. Not dreadful, however not flattering enough to bother with making 'for real'.
And didn't they like their 'short' sleeves long in the sixties? Modesty or fashion I wonder?
There are better dresses out there for my shape. Like something with an actual waist. Lesson learnt!
Yay for doing muslins then, however dull it might be. I think this means I have to muslin up another pattern. Oh well, silver lining: it's a great way to use up odd coloured threads left on bobbins.
