This is actually my second attempt at making the Jenna Cardi pattern from Muse.
My first, whilst sewn beautifully in a black merino french terry?, was much too big through the shoulder line for me. It was gifted to my lovely friend, Crafty Mermaid.
This time to test fit, I sewed the hip length version with 3/4 sleeves. I did not include the extra yoke detailing. I made a size 40 through the shoulders and bust, extending out to a 42 through the waist and hips. This now fits much better (than the photos would have you believe!)
The fabric is a merino/cotton I picked up for the absolute bargain price of $1/metre at a manufacturers sale. It is a charcoal grey with tiny navy/black squares woven into it.
