Alterations: Removed 3" off the length of the skirt
Fabric Used: Rayon Jersey Knit from Fabric.com
On the front of the pattern it has an "Easy" notation and it is! This is a fabulous pattern. I had a feeling it would turn out well, so I traced it with my Swedish Tracing pattern paper. I just knew I would be making this again and I will!
There is elastic in the shoulder seams, as well as the waist. Casings are made of the seam allowances.
Narrow hems are made in the armhole openings, neckline area, and front skirt areas. Before doing my narrow hems, I fused some woven interfacing along the edges which made it so much easier to sew without stretching the fabric any.
Instead of a narrow hem at the bottom, I turned up 1 inch and used my coverstitch machine. I have found that narrow hems at the bottom seem to flip up a little after washing. An inch hem seems to behave better.
I have layered a thin white camisole top underneath.
