Today I was reminded of this post, where I promised that these lovely fabrics (Heather Bailey, Pop Garden) would soon become something glorious. And they did! But I forgot to show you. And we all know that if it didn't appear on the blog, it didn't really happen.
I pretty much just cut and sewed here, with no real regard to shape or measuring. I did make a practice muslin version (here) in preparation for this, but I ended up changing my "pattern" and I am fully and completely happy. I've decided, one of the reasons I like sewing without a pattern is that if it doesn't end up looking how I envisioned it, I can just say I changed my mind while sewing. Whereas with a pattern, if it doesn't look like the picture, it means you messed up.
It's a little poofy around the chest but that works out well since I lack "poof" of my own. :)
I'm glad I remembered to model this while we still have fabulous summer weather and before I feel the urge to dress only in warm autumn-y clothes. I used to get so antsy around the end of summer to wear my new back to school clothes, even when it was still hot hot hot. I guess I'm still like that actually. I am always ready for the next season to come, whatever that season is.
