Nautical top - getting lekala #4511 to fit on the waist

 lekala #4511
So after my first attempt of lekala #4511 I was still intrigued but the pattern.
    I was not happy at all with the large hem on the bottom. So I just had to try fix that. After flat measure each piece and the previous tee I decided to take the extra from the side panel.
   So the green hash went out. I had 10cm + extra so I took in a little bit on back and side seam as well but very little to not break it...
   This time I didn't had the courage to cut into good fabrics so I went with scraps from previous projects ( nautical print top - V1275sailor dress - V8649 ). I like the colors but the navy french terry I used was thicker and stiffer then the print and it doesn't drape OK in this pattern. But at the time I was just concerned with the fit and the colors... I also wish I would have used stripes in the center and circles on the sides but too late for that....
   All in all I love the fit of the new version but the the fabric combo so the battle with this pattern is not over yet...

  1. Dragut, imi place! Eu zic ca a iesit foarte bine. Te bagi la tipare complicate. Si mie tot asa imi plac.

    1. Mersi!Da se aseaza bine pe mine si imi place asta da nu prea imi place ca materialele au grosimi diferite. La urmatorul trebuie sa fie fix la fel si nu prea imi place nici ca V din fata pare mai dark decat dungile de pe parti. Da e f bun tiparul asta sa mai folosesc din resturi si la urmatorul imi propun sa o nimeresc si mai bine :)
