I love that it's from a pattern range designed for 5'3"-5'4" tall pear shapes, because although I have the acreage up front, my back & shoulders are narrow in comparison to my hips. It's just that my bust balances it out overall. Due to the shaping this takes quite a bit of yardage, 4.3m of 150cm wide. I've got some fabrics that may work, although truth be told I'm very unlikely to get this made this winter, as by the time I've recovered from my op it'll be winter and I really need winter work clothes as I have a coat that's worked so far. Yes it needs replacing, but it should last 1 more winter when I don't have enough tops for work. I'm playing a smarter game & prioritising my sewing plans.
