Check challenge

I decided to have a go at M5466.










The check is large and navy blue, so I've used a dark blue bias on the sleeve hem. 
The sleeve doubles on itself so I've used the bias tape for a smoother hem.






This shows how I lowered the neckline by using the facing, a blue pen and a french curve, to help line up the neckline better.


It's now 7.30pm and I'm giving up for tonight - I think.

I like this pattern, and it will look terrific in pink.

Great fabric for this pattern. I'm curious about the sleeve technique.

The sleeve is doubled onto itself, so I've used the bias to finish the sleeve edge smoother.
