Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very detailed. Besides, there is a youtube Sew-along video from the manufacturer that shows you the technique to bind the v-neck and how to sew with a sewing machine. Very helpful for a beginner sewist.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that I did not have to deal with a lot of loose papers. I don't like pdf patterns.
I bought a medium weight poly/cotton fabric. It was pricey but worth it, because everything went smooth with my vintage sewing machine.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I loved the fact that I did not have to do any alteration to this pattern.
It worked so well on my husband. I am very pleased!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, yes yes! Make sure you have a really nice knit fabric. Test with samples first because I bought one expensive knit fabric that pilled on the wrong side really bad. So my advice is test samples, pre shrink them several times with your stitches then see how it behaves.
Now, take this from a vintage sewing machine user.
I recommend this pattern, and most importantly, for the best results, use your serger and coverstitch. My vintage sewing machine did well, but nothing like serger and coverstitch for a professional durable look and finish.
