This time I made a stripey version... look familiar? Yes, I'm just like Tasia. But I swear I had the fabric before she even released the pattern! So she copied me, okay?
The stripes definitely didn't make it easy for me. They were all nasty and wavy on some bits of the fabric for one, so it was a nightmare to cut. In the end I just had to do the best with what I had.
Luckily, with a bit of fudging, I managed to match the important seams quite okay! It took me quite a while though and I did have to redo some bits! I also tried for ages to match the armhole stripes before figuring out it's not really possible. Even Tasia's don't match!
|Check out my side seams though. Feels good! (Ignore the weird face.)|
I made a few alterations since my first test Renfrew. It definitely fits better, but not perfectly! Of course most knits have different properties so it's hard to compare fit.
I made it bigger in the shoulder area. I also took out some length and went up a size in the hips... Though I think I could go even further on those two alterations!
It still tends to ride up over the bust. I wonder why it does that... when looking at these photos I just want to give it a good YANK!
I also noticed it still has some wrinkles around the shoulder area. I realised I probably need to do a sloping shoulder adjustment just like the other patterns I've fitted so far.
Of course I will make another version and hopefully it will be better again! :) Cowl neck view, anyone?
|P.S It's still windy here.|
