|Here is my review of the pattern:|
Hand-stitched Sleeveless Tee and Short skirt from Alabama Chanin Studio Sewing and Design book.
S,M,L,XL I made a size medium in both.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The shirts in the book are not embellished only on the front, but other than that yes. This top is embellished with the Anna's Garden stencil that can be made from the book. The skirt is un-embellished and looks like those in the book.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The books give very clear instructions and inspirations for creating multiple garments. The garment construction is not difficult, but it is time-consuming. (Does time-consuming have a negative implication? It is engrossing, time-dependent, addicting, and repetitive.) The garments in the book require a great deal of work and the results appear complex because of the details, but broken down into smaller parts, easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything about the patterns in this book. The outside reverse applique stitches up faster than some others in the book. With this stencil, you feel like you are making progress especially since you are working with a running stitch. My hubby says it looks more complicated to work that some of the other techniques.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes.
Conclusion: Great books and start to an awesome addiction
