I made something
It's the first day of Spring break and I actually got something made. It's NL 6891 and I really like it.
Unfortunately it's a tad too big and has that maternity thing going on. However, that's the current style so I look fashionable. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. This was my muslin and it has fitting issues, but I still think it turned out cute. I'm toying with the idea of making pink knit shorts and calling it summer pajamas.
The back needs darts to get a better fit but since it's supposed to be a looser style I think it looks good without them. What it really needs is a drapey fabric. If I make it again I'll use a chiffon or some type of silky fabric. I don't know why I'm so attracted to this style of pattern. It rarely looks good on someone with a bust line.
