I embarked upon some irresponsible serging and I am happy to report my mojo is back with New Look 6939. I started late this afternoon and wore the top on my way to sushi -
I actually ran out of fabric cutting it out and added some white jersey for an additional flounce. I cut a 16 (38 chest) and have linebacker shoulders. Yet, I didn't fit it - merely started serging! My bad - it hangs off one shoulder. I bought the fabric - a jersey knit from Mood.
Here it is on the dressform:
I ran out of flounce fabric - so I picked some white jersey knit and I think it adds some interest:
Would I make this again? Perhaps - it's super easy - it's not form fitting at all (just like the picture) - but I would cut a 10 I believe to ensure a better yoke fit. Again, I wanted to get my mojo back. Here is a picture of the pattern below:
It's wearable with a tank underneath - but this pattern has quite a bit of ease!
One question for readers: do you press your knits as you go along? I did the yoke (I can tell that made a difference) but couldn't tell the difference for any seams (and I serged this).
Next up: Shorts - and some alterations and I'll be caught up on past due projects!!
