|Pattern Description: cross over bodice with midriff band |
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? A little confusing in places _ I used the internet several times for more help.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that it's the most flattering of the 3 Amazing Fit muslins I made. I think the midriff band really works on me. I dislike the fact that the high bust and shoulder area are huge again - it seems to be their cut as all 3 patterns were the same. This pattern is worth altering/trying a smaller size.
Fabric Used: 50P charity shop length with 30 p zip for muslin.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The skirt (I used the curvy & I love it) and the midriff band fit well. I will have to make another bodice. I do need a D cup. I will try a size 12 next, but it appears to be a good 3" too large so - may even an 8 or 10
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am going to persevere with it, & I would definitely recommend trying it. You do need time to sort through all the pieces, but it's great having so many options. My most pressing need is for a summer dress that I can wear with flat shoes, so I might try the next muslin with a longer, wider skirt.
Conclusion: This has great potential.
