|Pattern Description: |
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I think for the most part it does.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, the instructions were pretty clearly written other than when it came to the buttonholes, it just said "make bound buttonholes"!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I am always drawn too patterns that have design details, I like the pockets in the seams, the bound buttonholes and just the overall crisp look of this pretty timeless look.
The thing I disliked was that the armholes and sleeves were really small-so the next time I would adjust for that. Also, I would adjust the buttonhole placement to a little closer to the center fold on the next go round.

The fabric is a cotton with a sort of linen weave.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The previous owner of this pattern had made adjustments to shorten to a petite which worked out perfectly for me! How often does that happen!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew it again, next time in a solid that would show more of the details. I would recommend it to others as well.
I really like the pattern and may try to find more vintage patterns from this era.
