Out of the Blue MAGAM Outfit!

Pattern: Vogue 8886 top and pants.

 
Sizes:  8-24
 
Fabric: Royal blue polyester/cotton stretch bottom weight from Fabric Mart

Alterations: Moved zipper from side to front, lengthened the sleeves, removed one inch from the waist to the hem, and added four inches to the length to make sure as to not make them too short.

I really like this pattern which includes a dress. With this fabric there is too deep of a curve in the bust area. It needs to be straightened so as to not ride up above the bust. It was perfect with ITY knit.
The collar stands better on this top than the dress because I used a heavier weight interfacing.

  7. Yes,more blue - that rich blue really suits your skin tone. I love this little outfit - the top is so smart, which lifts the whole ensemble. Thank you for the hint about the above bust fullness.
