I used Simplicity 6971, what a felt would be a lovely simple pattern, a wonderful piece to throw on over the top of a cami or tee in the spring and summer for a really glamorous yet casual look.
On a side note, boy do I need to touch up the dye in my hair. Yikes!! That is WAY past a little root showing, lol.
Overall, I like the look, and I really like it on Ginny my dressform, more than on myself, as it fits a little differently on me. I promise pics of me wearing it soon. The sleeves are nice, but the shoulders and armsythe are just huge, and the back is also very loose fitting. The front closure is better placed on my body, as my breasts aren't quite as perky as Ginny's, so the closure sits right below my bust. Other than that though, it seems to look better on her...lol.
I couldn't find a closure that matched, and so I made my own. I really didn't like how it looked hanging open, waaay too loose, so the closure is a nice touch. I LOVE the buttons I found for it.
Oh, here is the cropped back:
I do still think I'll be wearing it. It's comfy, and cute. Well, I'll have to reserve final judgement for after I get some photos of me in it tomorrow. I'll post them asap!
