Details of the one garment I made at Craft Camp. A top for me, that I had cut out for the Feb Camp, but didn't have a chance to make then.
Fabric: Hugo Boss print from Tessuti
Pattern: Vogue 1247 Rachel Comey top
Size: 12. I had heard that this top is very roomy, so I based the size by comparing it to another roomy, but comfy, top I have. The fit is perfect- great fit on the shoulders and roomy but not too big.
Modifications: I'd heard that the front neckline is very low, so I raised the lower point by about 5cm.
The result: I love it! It's totally unseasonal for wearing now, but I look forward to wearing it when the weather warms up, and trying out the pattern again in some other fabrics. Perhaps in some linen, perhaps a little longer, and perhaps with a few less (time consuming and stiffening) French seams on the lower front.
