Let’s look at my houndstooth Sugar Plum in more detail.
I added bias tape I made from the bodice fabric to the waistband. I love this added touch!
Here is a closeup of the cute gathered sleeve. It also has a gather at the hem. If it is too cutesy for you, it is easy to leave it off and have a regular sleeve!
Here is a closeup of the neck. On this version, I put cut extra neck pieces and sewed them right sides together and turned them out. On all the versions I made of view A, I used a rolled hem on the neckline as per the instructions. But since I did not have serged flounces on this version, I chose to do the neckline this way. I got the idea from the testers! It is a great variation option.
What do you think? Don’t these fabrics look fantastic together?? You have no idea how long it took to find the exact right combination…but once I found it I just knew it was it!
Stay tuned for the Sugar Plum themed giveaway tomorrow!! For those of you that just want the pattern, the physical pattern is 15% off when you use the code sugar15plum through October 10th!
