Happy Easter weekend
I’m currently revamping the blog so bare with me while I make some changes. So you all know that I’ve been trying to reduce my pattern stash and I had reduced it greatly. But now with this haul I’m back to 500+
My goal is to stay under 500 patterns. One thing I did notice when I went through my patterns is I don’t really have a lot of blouse patterns, so I did pick up some during this pattern haul.
I did purchase two sew over it blouse patterns. And I will be honest I do not like taping patterns together. But decided to give it a go This weekend I tried to make the pussy bow blouse pattern and it was a fail. I cut a size 18 based on the garment finished measurements
Bust 46 (my measurement is 44.5)
Waist 44.5 (waist 37-38)
Hem 51 (Hips 50)
It was to little. I think even moving up to a 20 it still wasn’t going to be a flattering fit. So I tossed it. I do hate I used my good fabric lol should have did a Muslin (practice fit garment)
I have two other patterns from this company, I don’t plan to make them anytime soon maybe later in the Fall. When I feel like during a Muslin.
Oddly enough I end up picking up to Burda patterns that are similar to the Sew Over It styles I wanted so I’m hoping they work out better. Now time to discuss the pattern haul!
