After attaching the neckband, the right back shoulder area looks stretched out of whack. I snugged up the neckband on that side and it still stands away from my body but the left side fits as it should. I have decided that this top will be something I will wear around the house. I have spent enough time on it and I can say I learned something about fitting adjustments that I know now that I can use in the future. Thus I am ending this project and have decided to also end my cold weather sewing. It is still cold here in my neck of the woods, I am just ready to move onto spring sewing.
With today being March 1, it is time to begin work on my March Garment of the Month. I had previously posted that I would make a Vogue knit dress, that will be later in the month. I also signed up for the Intermediate Fitted Blouse Contest at Pattern Review; not the first time I have signed up for PR contests. I either don't finish in time or others use more patterns or use more fabric to win the stash and pattern contests.
Thus to meet both deadlines, I have decided to sew a blouse for the garment of the month.
