6-14. I made a 6, with C bust. Version B.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is actually my second attempt at this pattern. The first one was a bit of a nightmare, even though I still wear it. So, the first time, I could not figure out how to sew in the yoke and rigged up something. This time, I carefully followed each instruction and pinned it multiple times. Once i figured it out, then, yes, it made sense. Other than that, it was just fine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved that there were different bust sizes, but I needed something bigger than the C cup, and since this was only my second shirt pattern I had used, I wasn't entirely comfortable making bust alterations to the pattern.
Cotton from denverfabrics. This pattern was my first time working with plaids. Possibly my last. Ha.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Yes. My second time making this pattern, I omitted the cuffs since they were extra work and I usually wear my button ups under sweaters or alone with the sleeves scrunched up. I also only made buttonholes starting about a third down the shirt, since I wouldn't button it up all the way, anyway.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Hmm, no. Now I know why my grandma said that some things she would never sew again. It was fine, but I don't need any more buttoned shirts right now, and I am fine paying someone else to make them for me. Haha. But, yes, I would recommend it to others.
I'm so glad I made a buttoned shirt with a collar and yoke and cuffs. I am even gladder I made it a second time so I could conquer the yoke. I am most glad I will probably never make another collared yoked cuffed shirt again.
Blogged about it here.
