Frankenshirt Done! - Simplicity 3835/Vogue 8392
Unfortunately, it feels underwhelming because I actually finished it a month ago in muslin and it doesn't feel new anymore. But it is lovely, isn't it? I will have to get used to this muslin/draft idea, I guess.
I'm going to try to take some better pictures later but I just wanted to get it documented that it's basically done. What?
Yeah, it is not done yet. I used the 3/4" elastic in the sleeves that the Vogue 8392 pattern suggests versus the 1/4" elastic I used in the muslin and that was suggested for the Simplicity 3835 top's short sleeves. I think I'm going to change back to 1/4" because this seems so bulky where the muslin's sleeves seemed almost like balloons; they kept their shape but barely touched my arms.
What the colors really looks like.
