|Pattern Description: |
Misses' top with trim variations
sizes 6 though 14, I made a size 8 view C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
kinda sort of maybe
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I did read them, but did not really use them do to the changes I made, as for ease of the instructions, I would have to say no. I understood them but found that the way that they wanted you to do thins was not good, espl when it came to the front ruffles, I think a beginner sewer would have a lot of troubles with them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the simple top design, but now that I have made it,, not so much , just doesn't look good on me. and as stated above the instructions are not that good
a cotton blend form my stash
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not use the back and front facings due to lack of fabric used bias binding instead, used French seams because this fabric way fray if you just looked at it, also used rolled hems because of fabric shortage, and did not use ruffle,, trim. put buttons on instead. The neckline was huge when I tried it on so I sewed up the front top seam and used bias binding to finish
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I would with all of the other top patterns out there I would try a different on
Conclusion: I have been busy quilting lately and sewing for others so I thought that it would a good thing to sew something simple for me,, but it was not to be, I will wear the top around the house, but not in public,, I just don't like how it looks on me for more pictures and info see my blogblog
