    Very cute Lola, you are so talented. I also agree that it if you do add sleeves they should be cap sleeves. If you leave it sleeveless I think it would look a little better with less skin showing on the side/underarm area.

    Since you ladies were so sweet with your advice, I thought I would follow up.

    I switched the buttons and pulled them to the side, ditching the button holes for button tab fasteners and made a few more adjustments to give myself more room in the bust

    Love it, Lola! I wish I had you skills, or that you lived close to me so you could make all of my clothes. Keep up the great work, I can't wait to see your next creation.

    Hahaha, thank you! My hair is actually a bit of a mess in this photo, but with this length i can almost make it look intentional

    It looks great but I'm a colour freak so if I had your great colouring and figure I'd go for something a little more 'out there', say a rich jade green with dark navy blue or aubergine (eggplant purple) trim. It would lift the whole outfit.

    ^^^
    I;ve kept the pattern I made for this, so I may try making it with other colors and fabrics. This particular project was trying to recapture a sort of updated 50s housewife, so the colors were deliberately, well, table-clothesque (Dare I admit that in public?)

    I find that too bright a green makes my skin look sallow, wheras the darker off shades make me look rosier by comparison, but I like the idea of a jade and eggplant combination

    It would really suit you. Get a rich dark almost blue jade, not a bright green, perhaps in a shot 'silk' fabric with a bit of shine and texture teamed with the eggplant purple (almost black). Gorgeous.
