It was just sooo easy! I tried it on when it was finished and it was definitely far too sacklike for my shapeless figure, so I added dart tucks to nip it in a bit. They did the trick perfectly!
The neck kind of gapes open when I wear it. I considered adding a button closure but I didn't really want a restrictive high mandarin neck, so I've just left it and I think it looks fine. It looks great with leggings or my awesome Sourpuss pedal pushers.
In other news, my dear friend Trudie asked me to make her son a quilt cover using a vintage Star Wars sheet. I asked for a piece of fabric as payment, and this is what she gave me!
Aren't they divine? The yellow, orange and purple one is going to be made into a little shift dress, hopefully this weekend! I feel very clever, getting new fabrics when I'm on a fabric buying ban!
