As a recap, the #2017MakeNine challenge was started by Rochelle of Lucky Lucille and I picked the following nine for myself.
The patterns I chose are the following:
By Hand London : Anna
Closet Case Files : Ginger Jeans and Morgan Boyfriend Jeans
Colette Patterns : Myrtle Dress
Paprika Patterns : Jade Sweater and Dress
Sew Over It : Anderson Blouse, Betty, Molly Top and Vintage Shirt Dress
I feel like I took the easy way out and started with my TnT (tried and true) Sew Over It's Molly Top. This is my third one and I reach for it all the time. I wasn't sure if I liked it in the super drapey viscose blend jersey that I ordered from Minerva Crafts in January. The jersey is absolutely heavenly to wear, but I wondered if the top itself was a bit too flowey for my curves (as in I hope it doesn't look maternity-ish - yikes!), but I've decided I don't care. It is so comfortable. I did add a wee bit of length to it as I wear it often to work and the last thing I feel like worrying about as I climb up and down ladders or bend and stoop to grab things is if my fish white belly is hanging out or even worse if I have the dreaded "plumber butt" look going on. Eeeek! I was generous with my length adding too, because if I have no other talents in this world, I excel at the one in which I can shrink pretty much anything at all.
So that's update number one. Next time I'm back I'll talk about my second make of my #2017MakeNine patterns!
