Oh, Papercut Patterns. When will I learn to just always add 2 inches? I thought I could just whip this up from some leftover fabric after this Vogue skirt, on the serger and it would be easypeasy. I even went up a size to a large. All the LOLZ.
I stopped before adding the cuff and just gave it a quick hem to finish it at 3/4 length. A cuff would have been even more ridiculous.
Seriously, WTF did I do to that neck band? Yeah, I can’t blame that on being taller than the Papercut sloper.
My waist is just under my boobs, according to this hot mess.
These are high waisted GAP jeans. If I lift my arms any higher, you’re going to see 4 kids’ worth of stretch marks. No thank you.
So….that’s the last we’re ever going to see of that. Let’s all scrub our brains and go to version 2, ok? ok.
Ah, that’s better. Added 2 inches to the sleeves and to the body.
Unfortunately I added the 2 inches under the waist curve. argh. So, next time I’ll move that above the curve and give The Ladies a bit more room.
Shoulders are good. Sleeves are good. Wouldn’t mind a better fit in the waist…but it’s hard to tell if I need to grade down a size there until I move the waist to my waist.
No more scary neck band. Better fabric quality as well, so that might help. 😀 AND I skipped the serger and used the Viking on the whole thing. More control.
No American Horror Story scarring.
Perhaps stronger evidence that I need to move that waist line down- the bunching after the raising of the arms.
AND good boob coverage. Overall, wearable, comfy version. That pull from behind in the mock wrap right there…not sure what to do about that. Again, I’ll wait to see if dropping the waist down under my 2 inch extension helps…unless someone else out there has some better insight. Meanwhile, I’m going to burn version one, and put this one on now to pick up the kids. Cheers!
