Found a lovely jersey in
green jade, and found a fitting pattern in Knipmode june ’13 edition. Although I meticulously measured myself before and followed size, seam allowances etc… it turned out huge and ill fitting. I opened side and middel seams, skipped the ‘built-in belt’, narrowed it by a total of 7cm, made it about 12cm shorter, and the result is now quite fitting.

… and what it looked like before…
the original in the magazine, with the loud print you can hardly see the design, so I’m adding the illustration too.
so all in all happy with the pattern from Knipmode, but next time I’ll baste the main parts together to check the fit earlier!
