|Pattern Description: Misses loose fitting pull over tops. I attempted to sew View D, but ended up with View A.|
Pattern Sizing: size Y (Xsm, Sml, Med) I believe I cut the Medium which corresponded to my measurements and it fit fine (definitely loose!).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? View A did, View D looked awful.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The instructions were easy to follow which was important as I was just learning how to sew. Other than that, it's not the most stylish or nicest garment I've made, though it is comfortable.
Fabric Used: A very light cotton blend.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. But I should explain...I originally made View D, but the ruffles on the sleeves turned out horribly. My husband made fun of me and called it 'Clown Shirt' and has not let me live it down! Click Here for original version. I almost quit sewing forever, lol. As part of the UFO contest, I dug up this ugly horror & attempted to fix it by removing the ruffles, finishing the sleeves and hemming it: Clown Shirt After So maybe now I can stop hearing about it at home
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would not sew it again, I can't even find the original pattern (I might have thrown it away frustration). I would recommend it to someone that wants to learn some very basic sewing skills: sewing seams, gathers, bias tape hems...for that it was great and I really did learn some valuable skills so not a complete waste!
Conclusion: Easy pattern for a basic top but stay away from those ruffles on View D lol!
