There are now two sewing groups in the Vancouver Guild of Fibre Arts,( there are also 2 knitting groups as well. I belong to the Sew and Sews. At the Guild Christmas party, there is usually display from all the groups. This year the challenge for the sewers is a Marcy Tilton pattern from Vogue 8636.
I am using one of my new mesh knits, it’s pretty wild with words, which include Promise, knitting and bathing suits are for beauty pagents. It is also a great combination of colours for my wardrobe, a I can see it with jeans as well as other solid colours.
I am not a big fan of raglans, I took in my normal depth adjustment in the upper chest and arm, and I probably didn’t need to do it with this pattern. It is not too tight or binding because of the knit but next time, I will use the pattern straight out of the envelope. Well, except for one thing, I lowered the front neckline one inch. Quite a few pulling lines, still have some work on this pattern, although it could also be the light weight of the fabric combined with my adjustments.
