|Edited 01.24.13: I added a couple 'on me' shots for reference. I wore this today and OMG I love it!|
Pattern Description: Very loose-fitting with dropped shoulders; collar variations. I made view C
Pattern Sizing: Y (xs, s, m) ZZ (l, xl, xxl) I made the Small
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I believe so
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy; it's an Easy-rated pattern
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the loose, easy style and simple construction. It has some top-stitching detail and the collar version I chose (C) has a large collar; great for popping up. No dislikes.
Fabric Used: This is one of those fabrics I wish I had a ton of - nice quality wool, medium weight, super great to work with. It's a black/taupe houndstooth pattern. I've had this in my stash for 3 years. It was originally purchased to use for a coat but I changed my mind. I have enough left to make a beret-style hat.
Interfacing used was Palmer/Pletsch Medium in black.
Thread used was So Fine from Superior Threads.
Buttons were from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not want seams across the bottom half so I cut the fronts and back as single pieces instead of 2 top fronts, 2 bottom fronts, 1 top back, and 1 bottom back. I just taped the pattern pieces together.
I added stabilizer to the shoulders measuring out 6 inches from the neck seam. I did 5 regular buttons and holes instead of the 3 groups of 3 buttons.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew this again and I would recommend it.
Conclusion: This would be nice in a soft flowy fabric for the warmer months. My plan is to wear this over a turtleneck.
For beginners - if you have trouble edgestitching you can use tissue paper to help your feed dogs grab. You sew as usual with a piece of tissue paper extending beyond your fabric, and then just tear the paper off when done. Helpful pics: edgestitch helper, tear off, edgestitch done.
