I drafted the sleeves way too small and really messed up on the armhole.
Either I measured incorrectly or I drafted incorrectly or read the directions wrong.
As you can see from the photos, I had some strange wrinkling under the bust so I added some darts but that didn’t really help as I then discovered the top was too tight and I had the familiar bustline pulling that I often get in button down shirts that are fitted.
In short I totally screwed this pattern up but that’s Ok. I will have to draft another pattern as this one is really a fiasco!
I can always draft another with more ease but for the time being I’ve seen enough button down pattern action until next year , meaning until 2013.
So tell me, if you made a pattern too, how did it turn out?
I’m posting the link if you would like to post your projects!
