This review is for a t-shirt in the US Buda Style magazine. The sizes are European 34 - 44. This is a tee with cap sleeves and princess seams and as the magazine says "sits beautifully on any figure." I like the tee and the directions are well written. I have never made any Buda patterns before and the process in theses magazines is an experience for sure.
So I will detail it for those who haven't tried. You pick the pattern you want to make then go to the pattern sheet and STARE until your eyes are cross. (I took a picture of a portion of the pattern sheet above). Finally after two or three staring sessions you get it and find the correct pattern pieces. After crossing lines and redrawing a couple of times, you produce something that resembles the pattern pieces. Then you transfer all marking you can find that pertains to the pattern your making. Then the rest is the same, cut out pattern you traced and cut fabric and sew.
So, having never done this before it was kind of fun.
Would I do it again, yes and for those of you who want all the trouble sure I would suggest it. The actual pattern was easy and the directions were well written, but no fancy pictures to follow. I was scratching my head some but finally I figured it out. I guessed wrong on the size so I will adjust next time. Stretch fabrics are new to me also. So I have some wonky seams. But I am going to wear this shirt with pride, it's from a Buda Style magazine and I made it!
