Proof that I still sew. Summer Essentials Sew-Along #2.
Down and dirty details:
*Cut back 10, front 12 again
*Took 1" off side waist seams for more fitted look, resulting in the need to insert a zipper in the back
*Took 3/4" off the top of the pattern to compensate for not making an elastic casing
*Self-made bias tape, 1/2" wide. Because I wanted to showcase the floral, I chose a coordinating linen from the local remnants fabric shop.
*Blouse generally inspired by this.
Question: how do you all do it when it comes to bias binding and gathers? There were an unholy number of four lettered words spilling about as I wrangled this thing together.
Next time, I will insert longer than a 7" zipper in the back. It's OK to get on, but I do a funny dance every time I try to get this off ...
