Then decided I would make this pattern - pretty, relaxed, quick to make perhaps - first mistake.
Next I selected a poly fabric that I bought cheaply to test the pattern. The fabric was my second mistake.
|satin binding as self binding to hard to handle|
|bat wing sleeves - never a good look on me - why don't I learn!!!|
|Nope - not pregnant|
|back and front are the same|
1. Choose a soft cotton like a voile. The poly did not drape as I expected despite being slippery to handle giving the final maternity top effect. I think the fabric choice would make most of the difference to the finished garment.
2. Don't add any seam allowance. I did and it's not needed.
3. If you're full busted, this pattern may not be for you (or me for that matter).
This will now be quietly filed in the "live and learn" category. Now time for a cuppa and a rethink....
