I usually sew test muslin for sizing. But this time, I tried to just measure and proof the pattern with my body measurement.
I found a better way for the pattern layout that only 1.35 m fabric (115cm width) is needed instead of 1.70m. Here is my pattern layout. Please note it’s without nap and for size 10 or below.
I shortened the back of the peplum by around half an inch, because I don’t have long legs.
It’s my first time to sew buttons and buttonholes. After learning the functions on my Bernina 440, the process was effortless and quick! It’s all automatic. It even memorises the buttonhole length so all the holes are the same length.
It’s also my first time to sew a collar. I made good use of the tailor’s board I made to press the seam open.
Looking forward to the summer time when I can wear it more!
