|Pattern Description: Pullover, close-fitting top and dresses have button neck and front bands, and stitched hems. A: narrow hem on sleeves. C: button flaps. A,C: pockets. B,C,D: fitted through hips. C,D: back hemline slit.|
Pattern Sizing: I made my usual 8 at the shoulders blending to 12 at the hipline.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? For the most part the instructions are clear. The most trouble I had was understanding the placket construction, but that was probably more me than the instructions. All I can advise is to mark all the dots and sewing lines clearly on the placket pieces before you start! Oh, and in step 4, the instructions tell you to pin the "remaining band to left side..." but they forget to tell you to actually sew it on. Do that
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is a great pattern - no dislikes!
Fabric Used: A rayon jersey I picked up duriing PR Weekend in San Francisco.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used snaps instead of buttons. I thought they would be easier - hah! What was I thinking? I do like how they turned out though,
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have already sewn View B (knee length) in a size larger as a swimsuit coverup, and I'm planning on making the maxi version. I can see this becoming a TNT pattern for sure.
Conclusion: Great pattern - Go out and get you one!
