First set-in sleeve (Simplicity 7086)
This turned out nicely, but I chose the wrong color fabric. This was my first set-in sleeve, and I was really proud of it. It was beautiful. Unfortunately, I had to give the blouset away, because the fabric color washed me out completely.
Pattern: Simplicity 7086 View: E Size: 8 Fabric: Shirting
Things I learned:
I could lengthen the shirt a bit
I need to find fabric that does not need ironing. The one I chose needed a lot of ironing before it looked remotely wearable.
