I thought that the sleeve pleats would sit under the bust and that the sleeve would be much fuller. As it is the top is flat across the bust and the pleats are all baggy under my arms. This looks awful and limits my movement. I can put my hands on my hips but if I try to raise my arms any higher, the whole top rides up. I think I need to join Pattern Review so that I can research patterns before I sew them up.
I love this fabric so I don't want to waste it and Kristy has inspired me to turn this wadder into something else.
I've got a week off work so I'm planning on spending some time in my sewing room but I'm just not sure what to work on. I desperately need some new work clothes so perhaps I'll start browsing patterns and blogs for inspiration.
