So my Myrtle. At first I made a dress version with a green jersey and I cut out size M. I compared my measurements to the chart and it put me right into M group(just like with Moneta). However when I finished it and put it on, it was huge. There was too much ease in the bodice and waist and it felt like I would flash a bit of boob any minute. So that went into my "fail" pile and I decided to start again and trace a size S this time and I think it fits way better. For my next version I have to adjust the back piece a bit and make it a bit narrower in the shoulders as it has a bit of gaping around the neckline.
I also shortened the skirt piece to make the dress into a top. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to make a Myrtle or a Moneta with this white viscose jersey with pixelated roses. So I decided to make both as tops.
I used both overlocker and my sewing machine for sewing. I followed all the directions provided in the pattern envelope. Overall the instructions were clear and brilliant but I think the elastic waistband attachment process could be improved a bit. I think with a bit thicker or stiffer fabric it could be a bit too rigid and bulky around the waist. I used twin needle for hemming and finishing back neckline and armhole.
After the first shock of the size being off and adjusting my size I'm back to liking the pattern. I don't love it as much as Moneta but I like it enough to make another one in the future. I want to try this pattern with a woven fabric and I still need to fix the green disaster.
Have you made a Myrtle yet? How'd it turn out?
