I cut out a size 10, but had to take it in a lot around the waist. Now that I've had the baby, I just took the midsection in a little more and it fits perfectly!
The pattern was fun and easy. It's only five pieces (because I omitted the cuff pieces) and I love the way the yoke came out.
I thought then curved hem was a little difficult. I tried to fold it up twice to encase the raw edge and it didn't lay flat along the curves. I think next time I will serge the raw edge and fold it up one time. Or maybe I'll just make it a straight hem.
I wasn't sure how the chevron was going to look with the gathers in the front, but I think it turned out just fine!
I was in a little bit of a time pinch to finish before the game, so I omitted the buttons on the shoulder and the sleeve cuff.
Lisette patterns are quickly becoming my favorite! I'm definitely going to make this one again!
Fun day in Clemson!
