|Pattern Description: |
I made size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did. I think adding petticoat makes the skirt look like the photo more
Were the instructions easy to follow?
It was easy to follow, but I'm not the person who follows the instructions all the time. I make things the way I want. ~.~
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the sleeves and the pleats of the skirt. They are very pretty.
Cotton sateen (which has a bit of spandex, so it's more comfortable.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I change the neckline. view A seems a bit too high, and view C seems a bit too low, so I drew neckline around the middle of the two. I didn't want to add lining, so I made little facings for the sleeve. Because of the design, it's impossible to fold over.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'd like to. This was for my sister. I want to make mine with solid fabric. Maybe the jacket too
It's a very pretty pattern. I like all the details.
