|Pattern Description: Retro style fitted blouse |
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except for I modified it to forgo the bow tie. Next time I'll follow the pattern exactly and use a fabric with more drape.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. (I wish I had followed them instead of trying to modify the pattern on my first try)/
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the retro styling. I like the buttons up the back with instructions to do little bound buttonholes.
I used this light weight suiting material and it was not the right choice for this pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did it without the bow tie.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, next time I'm going to follow Gertie's pattern exactly as well as her fabric recommendations. The girl knows what she is doing.
