|Pattern Description: |
Vintage 40's tops, for lightweight fabrics, with a hidden zipper
6-14, I made a size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! It really came out that cool.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were numerous, and for that fact, somewhat discouraging, but, perseverance is worth it in the end.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the details. I like the shapely-ness of the finished product. I like the unique look about this top. It's going to be so much fun to wear!
I don't know what it is...it's a bit silky, a bit smooth, but entirely breathable. It was on clearance. And I knew I had to have some.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I left out the shoulder pads.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't sew this particular view again (view B), but might explore the other shorter sleeved options--after I take a look at how many steps would be involved.
I recommend. Fun unique piece to add to the closet.
