This pattern....let me share my redemption story of this pattern...
Vogue, 9270...you've saved me. I had several waders in a row and thank goodness you've brought be back from the brink of despair. OK, so I am being overly dramatic, but sometimes I do feel like my sewing endeavors are telling me something...stick with it; you've got this; stop doing this, it never works out; don't ever do that again; etc.,
This is a great pattern! The drafting is spot-on. The styling is super cute. It fits great, if not slightly a bit large so you can adapt it down and I love the length.
Let me back up a bit however. This is made for wovens and I used a stretch, burnout velvet. Perhaps with a woven it would fit closer.
The length is super fun--perfect for an almost tunic. Lengthening this a bit to wear with leggings would be very, very easy. Also, if you use a knit or perhaps a stretch woven, you may not have to use a zipper.
Sorry this is a bit blurry. My fashion photographer was a bit impatient as we hadn't had dinner yet. :) So catching me mid-turn was to be expected. At least you get a vague idea of the seaming on the sleeve. I had purchased lace trim to attach but didn't like the contrast of the antique lace with the busy print I choose. I hope to use that trim for something in the future.
This was super fun to create! I hope you'll try velvet in the future. I purchased this from fabric.com and love everything about it!
Thanks for reading!
