Lovely figure-skimming top with no closures, due to the flattering bias cut. This blouse is shaped with bust darts and center seams that gently hug the body. Version 1 has a long collar that can be tied in a bow and elbow length sleeves gathered to a cuff. Version 2 has a shorter contrast collar and a notched cuff. Pattern Sizing:
Sizes 0-18 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes Were the instructions easy to follow?
As with all Colette patterns, yes! What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the bow front and the notched sleeve cuff option. Fitting was a nightmare, but more about that in a bit! Love the bias cut and the flattering neckline. Fabric Used:
Cotton voile Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
What didn't I do. I ended up having to make the front and back seams totally straight and then draping new shaping in the front and put two darts in the back and the neck. Piccies on how I did this on my blog if it helps you http://coutureacademic.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/colette-jasmine-fight/ Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes, now that I have it fitting, I just love it! Conclusion:
Great pattern, seems to either fit out of the envelope or be a total nightmare...but worth the effort to get it to fit!
