So I started a new project (for me) this week, thinking I could get it done before we left town on Saturday morning. I had the materials, it didn't seem complicated, blah, blah, blah. AND, if the pattern actually fit me as drafted, it would be done already! But of course that's not the case.
The pattern is the Lotus Cami by Amy Butler.
I cut out the M/L, following the package indications for my measurements. After trying it on, all sewn up except the back and the armholes, it seems too big, but I'd rather cut it out too big than too small!
My issues are these: I'm definitely a smaller cup size than the draft model. But I have pretty broad shoulders and a broad back so I can't just go down a size. So I'm trying to adjust for a small bust along the princess seams.
And speaking of shoulders, one of mine is apparently smaller than the other, or droops or something, so I'm having to take length out of the shoulder strap for that side.
Here's my pins for those adjustments:
And here's the overall effect after pinning (except one little wrinkle in the neckline, which I've now taken care of, theoretically):
I think the neckline is looking okay, right? Ignore the side seams for the moment. It's not to easy to pin oneself and take good pictures!
But what is going on with these back wrinkles?!?
And I'm only getting the wrinkles on that side of my body. I can only assume it's related to the shoulder?? Does anyone have any ideas?
I know that Steph at 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World had quit a few problems with this pattern...but I had forgotten that when I decided to make it up! In any case, her finished shirt is gorgeous!
