Her post about the pattern: WIP Macaron
What kind of fabric did you use? nIt’s a lightweight cotton flannel that I picked up for free at a fabric swap.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? This is my wearable muslin, so I worked with fabric from my stash. Normally I don’t wear much plaid, but I loved Lee’s plaid version last winter. To break up the busy print, I used piping and cut the yoke and waist on the bias.
What thoughts do you have about the project? At first I wasn’t sure if the Macaron would work for my body type considering my only curve is my smile. I made several alterations to the fit, and when I slipped on this version, all hesitation disappeared. It added curves where none exist! Proof positive this style suits any figure. I’m so thrilled to sew up the final version!
