Another month, another Project Run and Play challenge! We've had so much rain all week long, I had to settle for indoor photos today.
This month's remix is the the Summer Chevron shirt. It's a great free pattern from Crafty Cupboard. It reminded me a lot of the above Persnickey photo I pinned (literally! I'm talkin' old school pinterest) on my inspiration board in my craft room. (The outfit is no longer available from Persnickety- it's like two years old). I have wanted to recreate this look for a long time, and this pattern was PERFECT for it.
So let's talk about how I remixed this pattern. I started with the size 3. I trued up the corners on the neckline so it would hang nicely and be a little less square, then I added 3 inches to the skirt width for a nice gather, then I lengthened it by several inches to make it a dress. Then I turned the bodice around so the buttons would be in the front. I altered the closure slightly so I could have an overlapping button placket to be like the persnickety dress.
this super helpful video from CKC and read this blog post from LBG and that's it. They each suggest different settings and I experimented and ended up using a combo of their suggestions. I used a 5 for my right needle, 5.5 for upper looper, 7 for the lower looper, 1 for the differential feed, R for stitch length, and R for stitch width.
