|Pattern Description: |
Misses tunic or vest with front placket and high collar.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, allowing for my changes, and the general uselessness of pattern line drawings.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Vogue's instructions are increasingly irrelevant. For the most part, I ignored them, which was easy to do, as there's nothing complicated about the construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love it -- nice shaping, a useful pocket, and a versatile collar to die for!
Three men's sweatshirts in a really nice burnt orange color.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Altered the lower third of the pattern to accommodate the sweatshirts; changes the slope of the shoulders; changed the shape of the hem; made cuffs instead of hemming the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes to both. This pattern is going to become a favorite. It's a sweatshirt a grown-up can love. More pictures and details on my blog, Noile.Net.
