Revisited in 2011, "Back To The Future T"
|One day, she might stand still...|
All in all I'm pretty happy with this one. Naturally, it's too big for her yet (all part of the plan!) I finished it slightly differently to what they had in the instructions, omitting facings where possible, or trimming them.
- left off the shoulder ruffles.
- reduced the sleeve ease so that the gathers & sleeve cap were flatter.
- reinforced the shoulder seams using clear elastic and secured the seam allowance at the sleeves so that they couldn't sit out (this was altering the appearance of the gathers).
- used a fabric loop for holding the button.
- added an applique.
I do intend to make this again in a different view, but I'm considering reducing the depth of the V opening in the back. I'll also attach the button loop before applying the neck bias trim and hide it inside the seam.
And I think the ruffles will have to make a comeback!
