|Pattern Description: |
A self-drafted pattern for a sleeveless top with collar featuring centre front and underam bust darts. It was inspired by the wedding dress worn by Lucy (Sandra Bullock) in the movie, While You Were Sleeping.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The collar and neckline are not exactly like the dress in the movie but there is a similarity. click here
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I put it together with a view to adjusting for a fit while going along, so the construction steps were not always done in the conventional order. For example, completing the centre back seam was one of the last things done.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the way this project turned out, although it isn't a close copy of the inspiration garment, which is what I had originally hoped to make.
I would have liked the fabric flower at the centre front neckline to have been more like the original, but despite several attempts, I couldn't recreate it in the time allowed.
I used a piece from my stash of unknown fibre content. It looks and feels like rayon.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Changes from the inspiration garment include omitting sleeves, notches and trim on the collar, high yoke seam and princess seams on the front. And of course, shortening it from dress-length to a top.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might make it again with variations: sleeves, perhaps.
Although this top isn't what I originally envisioned, I really like it and expect to wear it often.
