If you’re looking for the giveaway and link-up parties for our Sew-a-bration of Womanhood you can find them here.
It’s day 6 of the Shaffer Sisters and my Sew-a-bration of Womanhood series. Up today I have April from Modern Handmade. We gave all of the contributors a general questionnaire and here are a few of April’s responses:
Body Type: I’m rocking the pear shape!
What was the biggest challenge with this project: Getting the fit (almost) perfect. I used a pattern from the 1970’s and it only came in one size. And it was around two sizes too big. I needed to adjust the bust darts and the width and still try to keep it true to the style. I made three muslins to get the fit just right. There was a lot of trial and error and I finally decided that it looked good, started cutting into the good fabric and I’m so happy with how it turned out!
