|Pattern Description: |
Sophisticated, entwined front parts give both the shirt and the dress a special look. The bi-elastic jersey provides shape retention and a perfect fit. The dress has a flared skirt with nicely draped panels.
Pattern Sizing:Eur 34-48. US 8-20. This seems to run on the small side, most notably in the side seams. The waist shaping is quite defined so if you're using a thin knit it wants to pull across the tummy. I will straighten the sides a bit when cutting it out next time. This also runs very long.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes - I made the long sleeved top.
Were the instructions easy to follow?They could have been clearer, but I expected that from Burda. The illustrations were more helpful than the text.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I'm a big fan of twist front tops and dresses and what I particularly like about this one are the wide front neckline facings that fold to the inside and are sewn into the armscye seams. This really helps to eliminate roll out and keeps them firmly in place. The width of the front panels that create the twist are quite generous, which results in good coverage and nice folds in the bust area.
Fabric Used:From my stash...thin cotton jersey t shirt knit with a brushed feel to it. I can't recall where it's from.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes to both. I like the way it looks in a stripe fabric, too.
Conclusion: A stand out amongst twist front styles. Fast and fun - give it a try!
