I was thinking about making this for my trip in Feb. I would only need one to wear to church. KS-3533.  I would not do the contrast, I'd would just use the same fabric that I may make the dress out of.....

Another follow-up for Simp 4076, view C

This pattern did not work for me. I made it again with a stretch rayon in a nice green. Even with my good bra on it was a disaster. WON'T BE MAKING THIS AGAIN!!!! EVER


It's so funny how the right under-garments make all the difference in fitting. I made a scoop-neck tee shirt, I thought that it was awful when I tried it on with my not-so-good bra. I threw it on today with one of my good bras and it has a completely different look, even the neck line looks better. Mental note, always wear good bras when fitting. I feel that when you wear a good bra it's comfortable. I vowed never to make KS 2619 view B ever, but now since I know how it's looks with the girls in place I will make this for my SWAP for my trip next month.

Trying to utilize the pivot and slide method of pattern alteration per information from one of the books from Nancy's Notions. The math doesn't makse sence to me, but will try it again. I will be using KS3003, view A top. Cut the size L and pivoted, etc for a bust and sleeve increase. I have this fabric that I've had for a while, don't really like but this will be a weekend wearable muslin.
