Pattern Description: Misses' & Miss Petite Vintage Suit
Pattern Sizing: 6-24
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? They were ok.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I thought the method of facing for the neckline was terrible. Basically it is a double bias tape finish and there is no nice way to attach it to the inside. I ended up understitching it and then tacking it down.
Fabric Used: Cotton Voile. One layer with see through flowers, then another solid voile underneath.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I adjusted the back waist length, lowered the bust dart and then did a 1" FBA.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I like the way this turned out. It will be a great office blouse. Another one? With the bow it is a bit too distinctive to want another.
Conclusion: I like this pattern offering. A nice mix of solid wardrobe builders.
