|Pattern Description: A really great duster!|
Pattern Sizing: A-J. I made a C/D combo, which is the same size I made last time.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. If you don't count the changes I made, that is.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't look at them this time, but they are good.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the style, the silhouette, and the fit. This makes a very dramatic duster. I've been wearing my Geisha Faces duster and enjoying it very much.
Fabric Used: A reversible brocade. The fabric was unlabeled, but it's got a lot of rayon in it, I believe. It has an amazing drape and ravels like crazy. It feels, and drapes, like a chenille throw.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I changed the neckline from round to v. I re-drafted the facings. I omitted the patch pockets and created a 3D bellows style pocket and sewed it to the inside. I widened the sleeve cap to fit the armhole better. I shortened the sleeves even more than last time - for a total of 3" shorter.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've now sewn it twice in two weeks. I don't think I'll be sewing another one soon, but I like this pattern very much.
Conclusion: A fun garment! I can see getting a lot of wear out of both of these. More on my blog.
