I used the lilac dip rib, which obviously goes perfectly as it is designed to to. One issue I have with these dipped ribs is that the pattern calls for folding the rib in half at the neck, but if I did that I’d lose the dip. So I’ve opted for not folding, but the finish at the neck seam has suffered as a result.
I’m not 100% happy with the fit of this across the shoulders. It could do with being a cm wider. Unclear if that’s my sloppy sewing or the pattern.
Obviously it looks very fun with its little matchy jacket. Well done me.
I’ve loved wearing this with a long sleeved t-shirt underneath it (as it is winter and we are in a fuel crisis, babe). I actually haven’t finished the inner seams yet because I was so keen to wear it and then I forgot. Whoops.
