|I made the 6 but I'll make the 4 next and shorten the sleeves and body.|
Renata, this remnant piece was from that elusive Pitt Trading remnant bin.
|I've done a 2cm rolled shoulder adjustment and sway back adjustment.|
The thumb opening is placed 5cm or 6cm forward of the sleeve join. And the sleeve band is very wide so there's no sleeve pulls. Clever little pattern piece.
This fabric is a synthetic masquarading as a wool and it has drape but no elasticity so the elastic used at the pocket will keep the shape of this hoodie for a few seasons.
|I thought I'd add this photo taken when Sharon and I were at sewing.|
Beajay mentioned that I'm going to play with this pattern to make a smart casual version for end of the day drinkies. I'll show you that next in size 4 using a stretch knit.
I have to say that working with Beajay to get her jacket pattern to fit was a good learning experience for both of us and a bit scary. I've read alot about making adjustments and Carolyn has got her TNT patterns sorted so the 'rubber hits the road' when making these adjustments for a real person and not just on paper.
Amanda's FBA method for sizes above an E cup was a revelation to both of us. Thanks Amanda.
Then Rebecca and JudieL helped me sort out my own bra making test garment I had another go at getting Kwik Sew 3300. I think I'm one step away from making my first bra. Yay. I'm not expecting much so I shouldn't be disappointed with my first few makes. Yay.
