I made Alma attempt #2 about a month ago but have had no chance to wear or even share it here.
After some encouragement from fellow bloggers about playing around with sizing and dart placement until I was happy, I decided to do just that.
I am using cheap fabric sourced from op shops until I'm happy with the fit and then will go for gold with the good stuff. As I'm new to the whole apparel sewing, I really want to get it right before I splurge on quality fabrics. Plus if I stuff it up, it isn't so bad!
I made View B but don't like the sleeve length on me, so I folded them up until I was happy with the length and made some tabs to hold them in place. I also added some bronze coloured buttons.
More adjusting to do though.
I have to move the bust dart lower. Adjust for a sway back. Figure out a better fit for my shoulders.
Second thoughts about sewing for myself are constant..... is it worth it?
Am I just finding it hard because it is a slow process to learn all the techniques, not to mention my limited amount of sewing time to begin with?
The quest continues.....
First Sewaholic Alma attempt here.
