I bought the Colette Negroni pattern to make up for the Mr. last year... or was it the year before? Regardless I'd had it for a while. I bought fabric in the fall, but didn't get around to cutting it till before Christmas... I had a baby... oops. I finally finished it as a late birthday present in like April... and now it's July! Time for me to post about it right? So here goes!
I'm not a fan of lengthy, complex patterns (I admit, I don't have tons of time, so I like quite, simple patterns mostly!), but while this one was more complex then I normally sew, the wonderful instructions typical of Colette Patterns took me through it!
And the Mr. was super excited about it. I didn't use fancy fabric as it was my first go, it's almost a wearable muslin in some ways, but it's definitely wearable! and I managed to make the plaid look ok too!
So I now present you with gratuitous pictures of my wonderful husband... I told him to act natural and not pose... this is what happened...
He's pretty happy with the fit, and so am I. Ended up making a Large, but I had to take it out a bit through the ummm middle section ;) I also cut long sleeves and then changed my mind which meant I had to do some not so fancy adjustments to the sleeves to make them look ok. I still need to tack up the fold, but it works!
And he likes it!
