I found there to be a lot of ease is this pattern so instead of cutting a 14 on top and a 16 at the waist, I cut the whole pattern as a size 14. I'm glad I did as there's still lots of ease but that's part of the style. Another change was lengthening the torso my usual 1 1/2". However, it's still a little shorter in the front than I would like. In the future if I make this one again, I will add another 1" to the length.

Also completed last weekend was yoga pants! Pattern is Jalie 3022.
The brown knit was picked up from Fabric Mart during one of their sales. It's so soft and a lovely fabric.
I started my next project yesterday and I'm hoping to finish today :)
Last weekend I found my sewing mojo and completed 2 projects :)
First one is a nightgown from Simplicity 3696. I used the pattern once before so it was ready to go.
The knit fabric was picked up from Fabricland bargain section. It has a fair amount of poly in it and was seriously off grain. Is there anything more annoying than trying to straighten off grain fabric?
Anyways it was a fast make which is what I was in the mood for. Next post is yoga pants......
