My Les Fleurs rayon came in! Swoon! I will use it for a Melilot – which I mocked up in photoshop.
I just stopped at Stitch to get Lupin fabric and luckily Kalle was in. She just made up a muslin in a size 42, so I was able to try it on. I’ve been debating about size…my upper bust puts me in a 42, but the rest of me in a 44, maybe a 46 if I want maximum layering ability. The 42 fit my shoulders and arms pretty well, but barely closed. Since there aren’t any closures, I’m thinking of just going with a 44. It might be very slightly too big in the shoulders but for layering that’s OK, should fit well through the waist, and be big enough to layer, especially since it’s an open jacket.
I’ll probably pin the pattern together and possibly make a quick bodice muslin just to confirm.
Anyway, I also picked out this amazing fabric…it was all a little pricey, but it’ll make an amazing jacket. I of course mocked it up in photoshop as well.
