I finally tried the Halla Agnes pattern. My first muslin was a good start but needed changing. I had to add to the waist/torso length, which I'm thinking I should be doing to most patterns since I'm at least 1" taller than they seem to be drafted for. I also wasn't really happy with the sleeve, they are drafted to be on the fold, so the same front and back. I swapped out another sleeve from a pattern I made last year, which was better. Eventually I got it to fit nice enough to use good fabric.
The fabric I chose just sat so nicely, I was in love instantly! Wore this for the first time to a New Year's Eve party.
Now that I loved the shape of the body so much, I decided to work on it some more so I could make lots of shirts. My t-shirt drawer still has some maternity wear in it so it definitely needs a refresh!
Halla had a pattern sale, so I picked up the Amanda. I love the yoke neckline (in the main picture) and a lot of people have been mashing it with the Agnes. I put these sleeves, and the V neckline onto my Agnes and came up with this:
So I have now nicknamed this pattern my Amazgnes, because it is an Amanda/Agnes cross (Amagnes) and it's AMAZING!!
