|Pattern Description: |
From the pattern: What a winner! We have created a topper that accentuates the positives and covers the rest. A little ruffle or a lot, whatever you like. A classy, short cover with a bit of bling for a clasp to dress up a plain dress. The longer more ruffled version to give your mood a wonderful girly lift. Try it with a belt for a shapely curved feel. With or without sleeves, this one is all about feeling good and looking great.
XS-L4 I cut a small-medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is the second time I've made it and I didn't look at them this time, so you know they are easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought this pattern had a lot of potential, as described on my previous review, so this time I made it into a workout cover-up.
Cotton/Spandex. I actually wanted a sweatshirt fleece for this and didn't find any. This is a lighter weight knit than that, but honestly, it is more "Houston friendly" than sweatshirt fleece.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This time I only used one layer of ruffles around. I incorporated some of the design details from my favorite workout jackets and drafted pockets for both the front and sleeve, as well as adding a little "porthole" inside one of the front pockets for my earphone cord to travel inside my jacket. All pics are on my blog post.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I love this workout version and might make more. I know for sure my sister(s) will want one!
Like I said in my previous review, this pattern is a winner for striking out and making it yours!!
