Pattern Description: Oversized sweatshirt with neck variations.
Pattern Sizing: XS- XL, I made the SM (8-10)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I suppose in truth it did. I made the hoodie, but the even hem.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. Nothing was unclear, except why set in the sleeve, when you can do it flat?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Thought it had a little something to offer with the asymmetric neck. Turned out, that's the part that didn't work for me. Hanging low The hood Sewn high
Fabric Used: Cotton burnout knit. Very thin and see-through. And clingy. I used a three thread serge and then topstitched the SA to one side. Seam treatment
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Only as a last resort, I ended up sewing the neckline almost closed. The hood is huge and the fabric so light, that no amount of arranging keeps the neckline where it should be. And why did I not think the placket layers would end up being a distraction? They are. Possible save? Close up of placket
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I made the size small for a friend who wears everything short and tight. This is neither AND it fits me- I sew myself a 12-14. Guess I still owe her a garment. I'm crossing my fingers she'll think it will make a great beach cover-up.
She liked it! She asked for thumbholes in the sleeves. Will do it tomorrow and greatly relieved I can put it to rest. Conclusion: Once again, beware a Vogue pattern shown in line drawings only. It means something if they don't show you a REAL GARMENT. That said- maybe a size down in polarfleece and it would work. In red. If you have wolves in your neighborhood.
