So on the nerdlet's peacock dress post, Mother of Reinvention asked me if I had made any adult Ottobre patterns. I have only made panties but I have traced a number of patterns off and decided to make one of them up. This is a combination of Ottobre 2-2007-3 and 2-2007-5, which are both tshirts with slight variations.
I hadn't intended to trace off different sections and didn't realize that I had until I had finished the t-shirt up. This was made in a size 46. I chose it on the basis of most of my measurements and made no adjustments, but my chest measurement is a size bigger than the pattern. I figured that the since it was a knit t-shirt it would be fine, but I think I might be more comfortable in a 48.
The fabric was sent to me by my cousin and it is incredibly soft. It's actually been through the wash a number of times before the t-shirt was made because my girls are constantly playing with it and at one point the nerdlet even cut a big hole in the middle of it. It was going to be my first maxi but because of the hole the plans for it changed and a number of smaller things are being and have been made from it. There is another dress from the pattern that I used for the peacock dress coming up, but one of the bodice pieces has disappeared.
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and I intend to make a number of other items for myself, though I may trace off larger sizes than the ones that I have waiting.
