Vogue 8691 in a grey ponte.I had high hopes for this top, but was disappointed by the fit and the neckline. There is a lot of extra fabric under my arms-not a good look on a muscular build to start with. Then, the neckband was too wide, and did not lay (lie?) correctly. I ended up folding and stitching some detail into the front and adding a tab.
Who hasn't made Kwik Sew 3115, the yoga pant?Here they are in a basic black. Perfect fit!
Finally, some Clovers in a novelty denim.I love this pattern, but these turned out just too big. In an attempt to save them, I washed them and ran them through a hot dryer...they fit a little bit better now. I did not have the pouchiness in front last time I made these. Could my thighs have become more muscular in front and causing the fabric to not fall fluidly? If so, I blame this entirely on riding in a western saddle for the past few years.
Enjoy your weekend everyone-I am off for a short trail ride and then finishing up a Katherine Tilton tunic. fondly, Mary
