|Pattern Description: Easy knits: skirts, pants and raglan top. I made the raglan top. I cut this out in 2008 and started sewing it but never finished it. Decided to finish it for the UFO contest.|
Pattern Sizing: XS-XL. I made the size S based on measurements. Due to some weight gain since I originally cut it out, it's a little too tight to wear at the moment.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? More or less. THe envelope is a line drawing.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they are straight forward. Nothing difficult about this top.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I bought the pattern to try out New Look and I liked the style of the top. But as other reviews have mentioned, the sleeve dart is odd. I absolutely despise 5/8" seam allowances. I prefer 3/8" and in my view the neck binding would have been easier to attach with a smaller seam allowance.
I am not sure if the notches were marked erroneously or not but it didn't seem to have a consistent distribution for the binding. I had to stretch a lot more in the front than the back. I have some puckering though it does iron out.
Fabric Used: Rayon-lycra that I believe came from EOS many years ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No and no. In my experience, Burda makes better drafted raglan style tops.
Conclusion: Easy to sew but there are better patterns out there. Not even sure if I'll ever wear this since it's
