Not too shabby, huh? I made a couple changes this time around. First, I changed the neckline. I used the neckline and tie from Butterick 5859:
Then, I added 1" of flare to the skirt to make it slightly more A-line.
Also, I added a split cuff to the sleeve (I picked this up from New Look 6180 sleeve).
At first, I had planned to move the zipper to the side but the neck was wide enough to slide over my head. I drafted a hem facing (I love them so much).
Other than that, no other changes were made. As before, I made used a size 14 for the bust and shoulders, grading down to a size 12 for the waist and hips. For the fabric, I bought some rayon/poly linen look fabric from Hancock Fabrics.
This came together rather quickly and I am quite pleased with it. Very pleased. I want to send out a very special thank you to my friend, The Amazing Q, for all of the photos.
