|Pattern Description: |
Renasance Yoked shirt with four differant styles
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
For the most part yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
For the most part when it came to putting the parts together in their individual enbodyment, yes it was easy to follow the instructios. When it came to joining them all together as a whole. Namely joining the front and back to the yoke along with the sleaves, that was difficult and the collar came to the point of my friend and I doing away completely with the instructions and just figuring out our own way. But besides the minor snag of the gathering on where the shirt and the Yoke meet, and the collor, the dirrections were simplistic enough.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really did not like how much access sleave the patern created, and in some areas I fealt Simplisity was being just down right lazy and the appearance of the garment suffered for it but more on that later in the modifications.
I used a cotton that was very light weight as I made this to be worn in the extreamly uncomfortable summer heat with wool uniforms.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I Pleeted the sleaves into the cuffs and did NOT gather them as the patern called for, and I WISH that I had done the same with the body and sleaves where they meet the yoke.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I would sew it again but with some heavy modifications to the sizing of the sleaves (They're way too bagy in my humble opinion) and I would Pleet any where that it said to gather. I would recomend this to others but with the same modifications in mind. (You might concider making the sleaves one size smaller then the size of the shirt you're going to wear, unless you want the sleeves super baggy.
Over all the shirt came out well, but in the two days that it took us to sew it up (Spending about 5 hours a day on it both days) the shirt was the sorce of many fits of rage. Simplicity really kind of dropped the ball making some things more complicated then they really needed to be on this patern. I did how ever like the final out come. So I would give this patern three out of five stars.
