The back looks worse than it really is. The zipper isn't perfect but it this picture makes it look crooked and really bad. The button is a big random one I had in my stash.
I liked the look with the raglan t-shirt from the same issue. I made the size 34 with my shoulder/bust tuck and it is just wrong. This is how the shoulders fit. Hmmmmm, that part is too big it seems but the upper arms are tight. Tight. And the chest area is tight too. Really tight. I was using a stretchy knit so it must be the sizing. With BWOF their 34 is always perfect for my top half. That jumper above is a 34 and it fits just fine.
And check this out. This is before hemming it. These are supposed to be full length sleeves. I did do the measurements. I am clearly in the 34 size range for my upper half according to their chart.
I could make this work but BWOF has a raglan t-shirt dress coming out in the next issue. I almost never have to change their patterns to fit me. I guess I'll just be forced to stick with BWOF for now. I will probably still make a few other things out of Ottobre but now I'm not sure what size to make. I think I'll pass on the Women's Ottobre. I think I will pick up a few of the kids ones so I can have some basics. BWOF does have some basics. I'll have to look and see what I need out of there.
