so this became a slow fashion garment...and i'm glad that i didn't rush it. i'm not sure why really, because it turned out great...but somehow i feel like i savored the process more...and now maybe i value the finished piece more. (but really that is just because it turned out well.) :) anyway, the project unfolded slowly: printing the pattern out, taping it together, cutting out the pieces, tracing my size onto tissue paper (my cheap tracing paper), marking out my adjustments, cutting fabric, sewing, and adding buttons and buttonholes. i took my time.
i made the following adjustments to the pattern, just as a matter of preference:
-raising and rounding the neckline.
-straightening the cut of the outer leg
-making the back waist seam go straight across
-shortening the length to a slightly cropped length
pattern: marilla walker's roberts collection
fabric: ivory brussels washer
