For all three of these I used Kwik Sew 3703. I cut a size extra small, but added to the armholes and shoulder strap (picture below). They all have raw hems. I love this pattern. It fits beautifully and is extremely comfortable. You may think three is enough, but I'll definitely be making more. In fact, I was thinking of making one in white and then dyeing it with an ombre effect. Wouldn't that be pretty?
|I added to the armholes and made the straps thicker.|
Fabric: A cotton knit from Yellow Bird Fabrics that feels like medium weight t-shirt material.
Mods: I only had two yards, so I took out a lot of width from the skirt bottom. As you can see, there's still plenty of room. I also narrowed the neck and armhole bands to about 3/8".
Total Cost: I don't remember how much I paid for the fabric and can't find a receipt. $20 maybe?
Fabric: A poly/lycra blend from Gorgeous Fabrics. (It's still there!)
Mods: Just the aforementioned pattern changes. I had a few yards of this, so I was able to keep the skirt width. I even did the neck and armhole bands correctly!
Total Cost: about $30
|Eeeh. I probably should've tried to match the back seam.|
Fabric: A rayon/ycra blend from Emma One Sock. (It's still there!) This is my most favorite fabric ever. I was sick about potentially ruining it, but I think it turned out really nice!
Mods: I only had two yards, so I narrowed the bands and skirt width, but was able to lengthen it quite a bit. I've been wearing it blousoned over a belt, but should probably take off some of that length. I'm tall, wearing 3"+ heels and it's still floor length.
Total Cost: around $35
|The innards! Sometimes I sew, sometimes I serge.|
Sorry about the blurry/grainy photos. Should I go outside next time? Find a neutral wall?
