A Minerva.com post
I love this pattern, I have one with the fluttery sleeves, but wanted another one with short straight sleeves
What I love most about it is that the front wraps over for the entire width of the front so even on the breeziest of days I know that my modesty will stay intact.
I made it in cotton Jersey which is a fabric I turn to a lot. It is cool, comfortable easy to sew and easy to wear.
This particular fabric comes in several colours but I love this blue best of all
I just made one alteration to the pattern by shortening the straight sleeves a bit more. I chose the dipped back. I think that if you are a wheelchair user I would choose the other option and have a "normal" hem, the dip in the back is not necessary if seated a lot and could get tangled in the wheels. I would consider the floaty sleeves though to draw attention to your upper body. A statement necklace would be great too
I have parkinsons and sometimes struggle to manage fastenings, and so this is a perfect garment for me to get in and out of easily as it is held together ,securely I must add, by ties.
Please do read my entire post on Minerva.com Web site and you can order this fabric too
It is an easy pattern to sew and fitting is minimal so I would concentrate on fitting the top - there is room for a large meal under the full skirt.
The style is flirty and feminine and you will certainly be asked where you bought it from! And you know what your response will be don't you
