|Pattern Description: |
Misses' vests with front variations…separate patterns included for cup size b, c, d. Inspired by Project Runway.
I used the size 12 with C cup but graded up to size 16 using this method.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Easy - lots of diagrams
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the different cup sizes, you may still have to adjust slightly but it's easier than an FBA/SBA if you are not familiar with them
I love that the design options are broken down into individual elements that you can mix and match to create a more unique item, it feels much more value-for-money, plus you can make it over and over again with different results each time.
They also include a (ridiculously leggy) croquis and each element for you to trace so you can draw up the entire outfit before you start, sort of like making your own paper doll, super fun!
A cotton suiting, satin lining remnant
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made no alterations
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would love to try this view again, and view B with the bow
A fantastic pattern, a shame it is already OOP, try and get your hands on a copy if you can!
