Huzzah! I have muslined / toiled my Sencha. I cut a 16 with an FBA. I’ve also widened and lowered the neck line as the original felt like it was strangling me (a common issue, it seems).
Please forgive the tracky-dacks and the hideous fabric. The fabric is old, I suspect late 80s early 90s poly cotton curtains from a caravan awning, or tent! Least ways, something I’m more than happy to hack into!
So, is there anything glaring that I’ve missed? It does up all the way along the back, no problem. I think I’ll shorten how far into the sleeve I sew by 1/2″ as it feels a little restrictive around the arms if I stretch forwards. I may also lengthen it a little, as I hadn’t turned under the hem at the bottom and I actually like this length and don’t think I’d want it any shorter… Other than that I’m really happy as I did have some major doubts about how well this design would work for me!
So next question is, which fabric should I use? Some cotton with cherry blossom dotted over it, another cotton with smaller cherry blossom attached to branches, the subtle fireworks or some gorgeous satin printed with butterflies (or they may be moths?)…
Which would you choose?
