The front isn't too bad fit wise, but the back is way too wide; I've not had this problem to this extent with any other pattern brand so not sure what's going on here. I think I'm going to have to put neck darts in to make it fit better which I shouldn't have to do.
The fabric is from deep stash, it's an organic cotton in cotton candy pink; not really my colour but it doesn't make me look ill and is a nice bright colour so I'll still wear it.
The pattern is from By Hand London and the internet seems to be full of people raving over it, but I'm not joining the chorus; I won't be making it again.
|Hard to see the fit issues in this one, but they were the first thing my husband noticed which means they're incredibly obvious!|
|Keeping it real, this is after all what I'll be doing in it.|
|Beauty shot, I think the pleats are a little too long and as you can see the bodice isn't sitting correctly even with the changes I made. Imagine what it'd be like without them though, eek!|
