Another V8669

Here is my latest V8669.  I think I will put this to rest for awhile.  I practically sewed this on auto pilot.

One thing that I failed to do was to recheck the stretch of this knit fabric to the required amount for this pattern.  It was a little shy of the stretch factor.  When I tried this on, I thought it felt a little tighter in the upper back and bust area and I am sure this has to do with the stretch.  It is not too tight and I plan to wear it under brown jackets, so I think it will be okay.

Here is a close up of the neck drape and the color in this photo is more realistic than the shot above.

I have plans for a skirt, top and jacket next.  More later.

  5. Isn't that the fabric you bought when we met at Les Fabriques? The top looks amazing.

    1. Yes it is! That has been several years ago now and Les Fabriques has moved to a newer and larger location. I guess the fabric had finally fermented enough to make it.
