|Pattern Description: |
This hippy style vest has short raglan sleeves, closes with a zipper, rounded edge at the hips and wool trim.
i made the size 42
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
this being marfy, there were no instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
the collar is stunning and dramatic and is a perfect complement to the relative simplicity of the vest itself. i don't normally enjoy a raglan sleeve, but on this one it worked for me. i did not like the armhole princess stye line but ended up working with it just fine.
wool sweater knit from ann at gorgeous fabrics.
silk charmeuse lining from annex at paron's
beaded trim from pacific trimming
camelhair wool from mood fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
i re-drafted the entire pattern, using the existing pattern pieces as a guide, because i needed flatter princess curves for my figure. i also drafted it with zero wearing ease to accommodate the slight stretch in the knit i used.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
i might sew it again if the right combination of fabrics came my way. a piece like this is a classic and could easily be adapted to any number of situations.
excellent pattern that worked really well with my ideas for this fabric. all mistakes were my own and i'm happy with the end result. full blog posts and photos:
