Anyone have any experience with this pattern? After years of using an
adapted Butterick 3217 pattern (which is in hiding under the rubble of
my belongings), I've decided to take the plunge and try a new pattern.
It says easy, but looks again like I'll need to drop the shoulders (yes,
I know, horrors, but I like that look as it accentuates my shoulders
even more), possibly add a 1/2" to the neck size. The first one will be
sacrificial. Got some white seersucker today that I'm going to try.
WHY is it so hard to find seersucker that doesn't look like:
a) its Easter,
b) I'm saving myself,
c) I never cuss,
d) I'm going straight to heaven, maybe even before I die,
e) I never pass gas.
Is it just that the colors reflect the season it tends to be worn in?
I think the pure white can avoid all of the above, to a degree.
