|Pattern Description: Misses' Shirts: Shirts A, B, C have front seam variations, back shoulder princess seams, side slits and sleeves in two lengths with slit, shirt A has shoulder princess seams and three-quarter length sleeves, shirt B has armhole princess seams and long sleeves, shirt C has front darts, side front panel and three-quarter length sleeves|
Pattern Sizing:I used FF (16-18-20-22) and made the shirt in a size 22.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, I think so (other than a sleeve length swap).
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is the first princess seam shirt that I've ever made, so I don't know how it compares to other princess seamed shirts. I like that the pattern offers several different options with different types of princess seams (shoulder, armhole, or darted) as well as different sleeve lengths.
Fabric Used:I used a regular Kona quilting cotton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I did a minimal high round adjustment and full bust adjustment. I also decided to do long sleeves (from view B - the blue shirt) instead of the 3/4 sleeves shown on the envelope (the white shirt).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew it again, but not in the same fabric. I picked the fabric because I wanted that particular shade of green. Being new to garment sewing, I don't think I really knew what to expect from the fabric for this function.
I would recommend it to others. I really like that the shirt can flatter a large range of bodies with the different types of princess seams. I know ladies with full busts and small busts that have had great success with this pattern as well. The set in sleeves were a bit of a pain, but they turned out pretty well in the end.
Conclusion: Great shirt that I know I will get a lot of wear from it, especially if I make a better choice for fabric.
