|Pattern Description: |
Fitted blouse with bias collar and shaped hemline.
6 - 14. I made a 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Mostly, I'm not 100% happy with collar. It doesn't really lay flat, it kind of sticks up in the back.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
There wasn't a whole lot in terms of instructions. I glanced at them, but then realized I missed the first step.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I used a charmeuse (I think) from the clearance rack at JoAnn's. I often have problems with slippery fabric. I watched this tutorial, applied what I learned and you know what?! My seams came out perfect! No weird rolling, lumpy, junky looking seams!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None, if I make this again, I might rethink the collar.
*edit* 3/16/13 After wearing the shirt all day, the collar layed better.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It was an easy shirt to put together, minus the collar issue. I like the vintage style of it. I want to make the skirt with this pattern next, then I'll know if I would recommend it.
I'm happy I learned how to work with a slippy (slippery) fabric!
