In the October issue of Vogue Patterns magazine, they showed this design made in a lovely brocade. I wanted to stick with something more traditional and I decided to go with a brown wool tweed, faux suede collar and leather buttons.
Since I've been working out, I've lost an inch in the bust. This means I now have to make a smaller FBA. When I did my tissue fit, I was only off by 1/2", so this is how my FBA looks.
I've already finished padstitching the undercollar.
More to come...
