Today we're talking about the Closet Case Patterns Nettie. I bought this pattern over Black Friday this year. I muslined it immediately and then worried I was too fat for this style. I am putting that here as a disclaimer. Body shaming is not ok. I am not fat. Yes, my stomach is squishier than last year. But I also haven't been working out like I should. But that doesn't make me fat and the way my body looks is NOT something to be ashamed of. So take that negative thoughts!
I choose the body suit version of the Nettie with the Scoop Front and Medium Scoop Back. I started with a base size 8. I did NOT shorten above the bust. The armscyes were nice and high so I knew that that part would fit well. I did shorten the bodice across the waist by 1". I did a 1" full bust adjustment to add 2" to the bust and I also straightened out the side seam to match my 32" waist.
Overall, I REALLY love this top and plan on making a bunch of them in different fabrics.
