Cabarita V2Posted: June 14, 2013
So here we have my second attempt at the Cake Patterns Cabarita RiFF.
It’s not a neat as the previous one, no matching at the back seam for example, and the neckline has come out wide on this one – bra straps may be an issue.
I made this one from 100% cotton interlock, from the same ebay supplier as the stripey stuff. It was a pleasure to sew, lovely and stable, but obviously it does not have the same stretch and recovery as a lycra blend.
I sized up to 45 bust and 50 hip and it fits nicely, although it is a loose fit rather than a T shirt type fit. That’s fine. It’s for wearing to work anyway, so loose is good. I love this blue polka dot, and it will go with all sorts of bottom half items I already have.
The Hummingbird sewalong starts on Monday, so I will trace off the patterns over the weekend in order to try and keep up this time.
