|Pattern Description: |
Misses Lounge Shorts and Raglan Knit Top
XXS - XXL
I find the pattern sizing very generous. Definitely check your measurements against the pattern pieces.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy to follow, even with the options for the decorative trim. I would recommend this as a pattern for beginners or for individuals that would like an easy pattern to get familiar with sewing knits. Or if you'd like to get experience using different trims, ribbons, and lace.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The sizing around the neckline is large. I recommend adjusting the neckline on the front and back of the bodice. I did not make this adjustment ... and I regret not making the adjustment. However, it didn't ruin this piece for me. I will still wear this to lounge around the house, which was my intent for making this garment.
I selected a knit for the top. And a dotted cotton for the shorts.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did adjust the crouch in the shorts. I use a standard 2" adjustment to shorten the bodice.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, absolutely. This would also be a good gift.
