Have you seen the women's Ottobre 5/2012 magazine? Love it! I think I want everything in it, so I started with #3, Timeless and Cozy. It definitely is! I bought this fabric a while back from Fabric.com. It has quite a bit of stretch to it. Originally I had planned on making a wrap dress, but had second thoughts about my fabric choice. I'm glad I tucked it away because I am really happy with my pattern choice. I think a busy print always looks nice with a simple design. I don't remember what type of knit this is, but it is buttery soft and has such a nice drape to it.
I purchased this scarf a few weeks ago, and I love how well it matches the fabric.
I used a plain brown knit for the neckband, as well as the hemband. I made this in a size 38. I really debated on whether to make a 40 or not. My bust measurement fell between the 38 and the 40, but my hip measurement was definitely a size 38. I'm happy with the fit. The sleeves feel a little snug on my arms, but not too tight or uncomfortable in any way. In another type of fabric, I will probably adjust the sleeve width only.
Thanks for stopping by!
