Having a look at my last couple of projects, I cannot go on saying I don’t usually sew with knit fabrics. I discovered this rayon jersey at my local fabric shop for just 2 Euros a metre, so I bought it, thinking I could make another Bronte Top. However, pregnancy sort of ruled that one out. Around that time the La Maison Victor 04/2017 was published and the Odette Shirt looked suitable for the fabric. I also chose it because I thought it might serve as maternity wear but still be wearable tucked in a high waisted skirt after the pregnancy. I bought a metre and the given fabric amount for my size was pretty accurate.
- I lengthened the shirt by 3 cm
- As a result of that, the curved hem looked funny, so I straigthened it.
- I improvised some waist and hip shaping, because despite being pregnant, there was lots of fabric pooling around the waist and I wanted a bit more room in the hips.
- I serged the inside seams and finished the hem with a twin needle.
