I rocked you!!!! This is a wonderful job. Not real fond of the color, but you perhaps like it. I would love to see one in PURPLE!!!! Great stitching, great tutorial, and a great way to fashion a wonderful garment. Sounds like you modified things a bit, and didn't actually follow a real pattern, and that is GREAT! It shows that you know what you are doing, and how to get there. I hope you enjoy wearing it, and get many compliments on it.
Thank you so much! The color is actually a dark teal, which I don't think shows up quite right in the pics. The only reason it's not purple is because I have so much purple in my wardrobe at this point I intentionally don't use it a lot.
It's actually a completely improvised pattern. I learned how to stitch to my measurements thanks to a great pencil skirt tutorial from way back:
And then a lot of trial and error translating the lessons from that tutorial into other garments. Still not quite solid on sleeve construction, but I'm getting there.
I'm so glad you liked it so much! I have gotten a couple of compliments on it, and that's always nice.
