The fabric I initially had in mind for this pattern is a rainbow polka dot knit, but I wanted to test the pattern first. I pulled out this thicker grey mystery knit (definitely some poly content, but nice) because it was still quite chilly up here. Since the pattern seemed to already allow a lot of custom fitting (bust size, different dots for waist size, etc.) I didn't want to do any other alterations before I saw how it fit.
|This has the waist pulled down below my bust, but you can see it's straining to stay there.|
|Side fit is pretty good,for my swayback, but you can see the front waist creeping up into the bust curve.|
Next up (most likely) is my first foray into wovens in a good long while. I have so many nice woven patterns that I'd like to make, but I keep chickening out about fit. Which is stupid. It's only fabric! If I can't be adventurous with inanimate pieces of cloth, what does that say about my life? For now, I'm off to grade hundreds of final exams, oh joy! :)
