Joy (from Joyful Expressions) has completed a Shawl Collar blouse. She followed the directions on page 44-45 of the SFD Dress Kit Instruction book to add this shawl collar design to her SFD Shirt Kit and what a success it has been! That's one of the many benefits of Sure-Fit Designs is that you can mix and match instructions from one kit and use them on another.
Let's take a look.
First...the pattern. You'll notice the dart which she added to her shirt pattern for her full bust.
And the back...
Don't get down on yourself when experimenting with designing and drawing your patterns. All of life is a fabulous learning process, so enjoy the journey!
And knowing Joy as I do from her blogs, she re-drew this pattern and sewed a second shawl collar blouse. Notice the back of the collar no longer has the inverted 'V'.
Well done Joy! I'm so glad you are enjoying fitting and sewing with your Sure-Fit Designs pattern kits.
