I made View B.
Pattern Sizing: 6-14, I made a size 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very much.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were good. The draped front was assembled in a way I wasn't expecting, and it was explained well.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have a love/hate relationship with kimono sleeves. I love sewing them, but the extra volume always makes me look bigger than I am. In my case, the chevron pattern only exacerbated the volume issue.
Fabric Used: Cotton/rayon jersey from Girl Charlee.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added in-seam pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I think I will sew this view again, but I'll be more careful about my fabric choice. I'm not thrilled with the chevron. I'm sure I'll make the other views as well.
Conclusion: More on my blog.
