Autumn 6PAC update
Have been finding small bits of time almost every day to keep on with my sewing, though sometimes it is only for fifteen or twenty minutes. The minutes add up though...
"mystery fabric". I suspect this will see a lot of wear just as soon as the weather cools down. All edges self-bound including pocket tops.
It did take a bit of doing to get the under-armscye to not be quite so baggy, but the odd darts (vertical, next to side seams) I needed to take are basically hidden in the texture of the heavy cotton fabric. I think that the next time I make this pattern, I shall do a few minor adjustments on the upper bodice, I think that the shoulders are just a bit wider than I am comfortable with, they almost try to slide off, so rather than shift them, I shall narrow them instead. I also think that I need to either scoop out the armscye a bit in the front, or maybe do a small narrow upper chest adjustment... not sure...but the inner edge of the armscye, just above the bust, is not quite right.
