I knew I wanted to give the full length option a try because it just looked incredible on every single person that had already sewn it! I opted for the 3/4 Sleeve as it is my personal favorite length for my body shape and of course went off-the-shoulder because…I cannot stop sewing the off-the-shoulder option.
I checked my stash from my last trip to the Fashion District in Downtown LA and when I couldn’t decide which fabric to pick, I asked some of the ladies from the Patterns for Pirates Facebook Group to pick for me. Someone picked this plaid Liverpool from Angel Textiles and the result is pretty awesome. It’s just perfect for the coming Holiday season. Fabric choices are everything and this plaid dressed it down a little. If you are going someplace extra special check out the more formal fabric options that have been sewn up.
And I’ve got to say, that neckline DOES NOT BUDGE. I can promise you, you will not need to adjust all day/night long! Don’t worry about sewing it either, it finishes beautifully and quite easily.
The Wiggle, in all it’s forms, is also incredibly comfortable. Like, seriously, The days I wear one, I do not find the need to change when I get home to relax, because I am already THAT comfortable. I know you want to roll your eyes at that…because we all have clothes that we wear the second we come home. But seriously, I am finding myself wearing the Wiggle from morning to night.
…and can we take a minute to talk about the back shaping again? It is going to do you ALL KINDS of favors. The pattern comes with a built in sway back adjustment so it will hug your curves.
…and in my case make me feel like some kind of Christmas Tree Farm Model. LOL!
For the detail oriented seamstresses out there: I used XL graded to L in the hips (My
current measurements are 36 Overbust, 41 Bust, 33 High Waist, 41 hips) and did my standard height adjustments to account for my 5′-2″ frame as the pattern is drafted for 5′–5″.
I’d love if you would stay tuned here, or follow me on IG @clothed.in.vermillion to check-out all the Wiggles I have sewn for my closet!
