Thanks for this review. I traced out my pattern last night and I appreciate the notes about the sleeves and the neckline finish. I think your collar treatment looks great.

Very nice outcome, Patti. It looks like the hard work paid off :)

It couldn't have turned out any better. Your customizing is so clever and looks great. Fit is perfect, too. Here's another pattern that I wish there were time to sew!

Really a sharp looking shirt with all your changes. I wondered how you got the collar to match so well. The change of direction of the stripes in the placket and the collar make this look like a very expensive item!

What a cool way to make the collar!

Hey I'll box up some of this summer we're having here in Georgia and send it right along--101 degrees on my back porch yesterday. That's really cute and I love your special touches.

This is very beautiful and all your matchings are perfect. I would love it if you could tell me what thread you used for the topstitching in the collar ?

Patti B said...
Winifred, I used two spools of Madeira rayon embroidery thread for the collar topstitching thinking the sheen would help it stand out against the green. Thanks for the kind words!

I really like your collar details! Very nice top, and the color looks good on you too.

Beautiful top and you color coordination is right on the mark. Lovely.

Well, that's downight ingenious, what you've done with that collar and the extra little piece on the placket. I'm so glad you included the close-up pictures. EVERYTHING is just PERFECT. I wouldn't even have looked twice at this pattern, and now I seem to think I can't live without it. Thanks a lot. :o) GREAT review! I was just looking at your pictures again. Did you have to raise the neckline at all? It looks low on the pattern, but yours looks just right. Thanks.

Patti B said...
Annette, I did nothing to the neckline; this is how it was drafted. I wondered how the collar would lay but it turned out just fine. BTW I should have mentioned that this pattern eliminates the 'fussing with corner' problem that plackets may present. The shirt below the placket is a separate piece so that it is sewn to the bottom of the placket and then this piece is sewn all the way around to the shirt. Easy-peasy.

Winifred said...
Thanks for your reply - I do appreciate it. Still a little uncertain ( or really thick!) Do you mean that you used two strands of the Madeira on the spool ? ?Madeira on the bobbin or ordinary Gutterman or whatever? Really want to try to replicate this. At last I've found someone to ask as a bit reticent with experimenting - dont know why, I've been sewing long enough!!

Patti B said...
Winifred, you're spot on with what you've figured out -- 2 threads through the needle and regular thread in the bobbin. Hope it works for you.

Thank you, Patti for this thorough review of this pattern. This is lovely. I'm inspired to try a pullover top pattern. I love your details. The pleating really makes it for me. Thank you for all the photos of the details. The top looks really nice on you.

Wonderful custom details that make this shirt very special. I wanted to see if anyone had made this in a lightweight wool with the hood for winter. I now live in Oregon and find I want a hood on every garment I own (rain). Thanks for the very complete review!

I have made this pattern twice now. Be careful when you put in the sleeves that they don't look puffy. It your fabric doesn't ease well just pinch down the cap to shorten it slightly.
