The Sencha is done. It started as a muslin, and that may be what is stays. I was excited I did nice buttonholes, but the fit is just awful. I am a busty girl, and the chest is huge. Also, when I stretch my arms out I have a weird flying squirrel effect. This just went wrong, and I'm so disappointed because I wanted it to work out so bad.
Final Thoughts: This was bad. From my fabric issues to my fitting issues this was bad. I definitely need to make a smaller size if I make this again. I'm pretty turned off by the whole experience, so I may not. Also, I usually like Colette directions, but this one called for catch slipping the sleeves, but didn't explain what that means. The technique I invented has me catching my pinkie finger in the stitching every time I put it on. Is that a sign I did it right or wrong?
|This is said button hole foot thing by the presser foot. There may be a more technical name for it, but why should there be?|
|This is my first try on of the final. As you can see very, very big.|
|This is the back, which looks awesome, except for the fit.|
|This was after I took the sides in an inch.|
|This is the back after I took in both back darts an inch.|
|This is how pretty it is just sitting there.|
