There appear to be a few things lost in Google translation (double gather from aplomb anyone?), but this is better than any of my guesses. I am saving these instructions here to refer to when I make a second muslin. The first muslin, which I cut in size 38, was too small. I'll try a size 42, but I think I will end up splitting the difference with a size 40. I've found that fabric choice makes a difference with this. My muslin was an old flannel sheet and the front "volante" (Spanish) or "calipers" as the translation would have my believe it is (I will call it a "flounce") sits like a big fat 70s tie.
|Patrones 285 #12. This pose isn't even cute. Don't we all wish we knew what this shirt really looks like?|
|I think it's a more tame version of this shirt (285 #8), cap sleeves and smaller front ruffle and slit (this slit is J. Lo worthy!)|
