The adjustments this time were
- reduce the bust darts and centre back darts by 1.5cm
- add 1.5cm at centre seams on peplum, so the flounce is untounched
- drop the neckline and fix gaposis
- redraw the base of the cap sleeve.
And the neckline is now a v-neck.
Here's the redrawn sleeve pattern. I took more off the sleeve length at the base on the sleeve, using a french curve. The peplum is still 2" shorter than the pattern.
There's a row of purple piping on the edge of the cap sleeve. The sleeves are lined. Bias binding is used to finish the neck edge, hem, zipper seams and sleeve edges. I'll be wearing this as you would a basic white top.
I have visions of using this pattern for a casual jacket but for now, I have to get back to my planned project commitments in between cleaning the house. I know - both situations are sad:)
