It's e very explicit print, that I would not choose normally. I bought it from EmmaOneSock, and there are more swirls then assumed. But for this top it seemed fine, and for me it is. This print does not require a pattern with many design details.
First I completed the adaption of the pattern. The sewing books did not solve the problem how to correct the extra width on my front armhole. But with common sense I came to this method of working:
- Pinned a piece of fabric under my arm and marked the armhole line I wanted
- Cut the fabric at the line of the added dart
- Marked the pinned line on the muslin fabric
- Drafted the lines of the adapted armhole the back and front pattern
- Drafted the "dart" on the front part, and moved the extra width to the side dart
- As last point I redrafted the point of the dart a little higher, as the bust point on the pattern was lower than mine.
The result in my finished top is good.
