This time I sewed a size T for shoulders, U for bust, T for waist, and W for hip - going closer to my measurements than the last few times.
1/4" hollow chest
1/4" forward shoulder
1/4" square shoulder
I also lowered the neckline by 3/4"
It's a great fit. I've worn it all day today and in the morning I wasn't sure all my adjustments were worth it but by the end of the day I found myself loving the tee. It is very comfortable, I can bend forward with nothing showing, and I can bend over with my rear still being covered. :D
The fabric is a dream. I picked up 1.5 yards on 2/2/14 for a lady skater dress. I'm not too sold on the pattern on my body so it's on hold. The fabric is a brushed rib knit and lusciously soft. When it arrived I went back onto fabric.com and ordered 4 more yards. LOL. You must stock up when fabric exceeds your expectations (especially in a knit). My DD kept rubbing my shirt today - so I know it is uber soft.
Definitely a keeper.
Soooo this animal started digging at my favorite photo spot and I'll just avoid it for now because we think it may be a badger.
I tried to go near the barn but it was too light.
I tried to go on the flip side and it was too dark and too windy. I'll just have to keep looking for the perfect spot.
I am very grateful that the weather has been nice enough for 3 days now so that I could do this:
Here is another project I sewed up in April, though there isn't much to tell.
I love maxi skirts and wanted a nice striped one. I sewed this up by cutting with 20" at the waist and moving out to 30" at the bottom. It is lined to the knees as well. I'm not happy with the elastic waistband because I goofed it up. And I don't like how it gets caught in my feet. I'm probably going to hack it up to be a tank top - I'm not sure yet- the bonus of sewing is that I have the option to change what I don't like! (2 yards skirt stash, 1 yard lining stash)
