* I don't have that many clothes.
I made the following adjustments:
- Remove 3/4" from shoulder seams (yawn) as I always do
- Make front neckline less deep
- Make 1 1/4" full bust adjustment and rotate out the resulting dart (see here)
- Take in a tapered amount on the side seams from 1 3/8" at the waist up to nothing at the underarm on both front and back pattern pieces
- Add 1/4" elastic at the waist seam before gathering and attaching the skirt (it's a lot of weight and bulk for that seam to carry without stretching).
- Remove 2 1/2" from the height of the sleeve cap to (a) match my smaller armhole from lopping off height at the shoulder seams and (b) I hated the gathers on the sleeve cap, so they're gone
- Cut the sleeves down to cute cap sleeves for the summer

I quite like brown, and I wanted to try sewing with interlock. It's quite nice to handle: very drapey but quite stable and not particularly stretchy. This fabric is a bit to shiny for my liking, but it was on sale and cheap.

Despite the anger that the twin needle involved and the fixing of the machine and walking foot, it was totally worth it for the professional ready-to-wear look it gives! Cheers for my birthday present, bro! :-)
