Background: One shoulder top in the store never worked for me due to my thin shoulder. I decided that it was about time to sew one for myself!
Fabric: Printed viscose, poly, Lycra knit from elliottbermantextiles.com. Big flower print on a black background. I was thinking of making a fitted dress when I purchased this fabric, but it was too thin for the fitted style. Note on this fabric: it stretches a lot! As I tried on the garment to check the fit, it had already grown towards the floor -more than an inch!
Pattern: Burda 7549. I made View A, which had only one piece!
Changes and Alteration: I reduced the bodice width by 4 inches, raised the armhole by 3.5 inches plus 2 inches after I saw how it stretched downward, and shortened the sleeve length to make the line smooth from the armhole. I didn’t cast elastic at waist and made it hang straight. I’m going to wear it as a tunic.
Until next time, cheers to you all!
