|Pattern Description: I made view D, the one with the poof sleeves and front pleats.|
Pattern Sizing: I made a size 6, based on measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not entirely, since I had to add piece, and then I came up short with fabric for the length (my fault, not the patterns).
Were the instructions easy to follow? They were OK.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I wasn't nuts about the pleats, but they came out looking fine, there was some problem with the shoulder, and I ended up needing to add a piece, for it was cut too small. Overall, it was rather a pain.
Fabric Used:A semi-sheer, beautiful fabric (I think) that I regret using on this failed piece.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, and probably not, although I have made view C before, and it came out well enough with adjustments.
Conclusion: Maybe it was my inexperience showing, or maybe it was the fabric I used, or perhaps some combination, but this was a sadly failed effort for me.
