For me this one gets the big thumbs down. Have you ever had that horrible feeling halfway through sewing a garment when you realise you will never actually wear it? I got it with this one. Lucky for me however, that this was a practice run. I was trialling the pattern on cheap fabric (cotton voile from Spotlight) before cutting into my good stuff.
- i added the button hole & loop and ties -
- i shortened the sleeves -
There's nothing actually wrong with the pattern exactly. It's just that when I wear it, psychologically and emotionally I feel like a cross between
...not good at all!
It just feels wrong. I think the neckline is all wrong for me. Perhaps too high. Perhaps too boring. Perhaps too much coverage.
So what is to become of it? I think I'll stuff it into a postpak and send it to my younger sister. Her and her family are into boating and she's always looking for cool, flowy, sun-safe shirts. Perfecto!
