|Lutterloh 285 66|
I wrote last week about trying out the Lutterloh system, and the fitting problems I had because I took my measurements incorrectly. I have redrawn the pattern using my correct measurements this time, and the top looks and fits very much like the pattern drawing. I had to lower the waist 1 3/4" and raise the bust dart 1 1/2". Other than that the pattern gave me just what I expected from the pattern pic; size for size at the bust, 3" of ease at the waist and 1" ease at the hip.
|Can you see the facing through the fabric? Yeah, that had to go.|
I'm quite happy with the style of the top, and was pleasantly surprised to find it is something I can wear with leggings. And I'm happy enough with the system that I've ordered a couple of recent pattern supplements. I love the idea that I can trace out a pattern for myself and then use the same template to make a pattern for my daughter using her measurements. I am a Lutterloh convert!
