Let me remind you, this is my first attempt at making something for myself. And maybe my last, because I do not rock it. I really struggled with the 5/8" seam allowance, it's a huge amount compared to the 1/4" I normally use. I shortened it to tunic length because I just don't wear dresses but regret my decision because the bell cut looks worse without the length to balance it. I finished at 2:30 in the morning, and after studying myself in the mirror, I was reminded of this:
A froggy dinner lady tabbard. I had hoped that I would be making myself something suitable for the occassion of meeting Friend Sarah in town tonight for
drinks a business meeting. But I think I've put her through enough recently.
So here it is in all it's baggy froggy glory. I did actually take the chest in four inches this morning to give it a more fitted shape.
