I made a size 3 but added to the bust at the seam. Then I took it all in again by 1cm down the side seam after trying it on.
I took a good 2 inches off the bottom. I read somewhere that the hem shouldn’t finish at the widest part of you and I agree. A couple of inches above is much more flattering on me.
This week has seen my Coco turn from this.
And finally after a dash to the shop for enough fabric for one more sleeve, to this.
My daughter isn’t keen but I love it.
What’s not to love? It’s so warm and snuggly.
I shall wear it this weekend to our Yorkshire Spoolettes meet-up in Dewsbury (the forecast is cold) and get a photo of me in it.
You see, I had taken my makeup off at this point.
Not a pretty sight.
Love, Lucie xx
P.S. Here’s a photo taken on the Saturday ready for our meet up!
