So while things have been quiet here, I have been working. I am going to a sock knitting group in PB on Tuesdays and am still taking my advanced knits sewing class on Wednesdays. I spent the first half of the semester making alterations to my Renfrew pattern. I did a 1/2" wide back adjustment and a 5" Y-bust adjustment. When I originally traced the pattern, I traced a 10, but after getting back from the cruise got nervous that my little bit of weight gain would have it too tight. So I traced the 12 and added the needed adjustments (mentioned above). Well, in the end, the top is a bit loose. I have actually lost 9 lbs in the last two weeks, so I could have kept the 10. Not to worry, I saved that traced piece, so I will finish the 4" y-bust adjustment and cut out my white version in the next few days. I think that will be a perfect fit.
Either way, I still love the outcome. It is comfy while still being stylish. I put it on after Church, pairing it with my Vogue8774 jeans that I made late last year and took a stroll around my neighborhood. I have had a lot of success with Sewaholic patterns to date. So far I have made her Pendrell blouse and the Minoru jacket. There will be more of both of these and I have at least two more renfrew's planned. Perfect timing for Me-Made-May 12 with Sew Zo.
