|Pattern Description: Raw-edged raglan slim-fit t-shirt and dress.|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Basically, except for my embellishments.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Very much so.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?This dress had basically 3 pattern pieces and a bias piece to cut for the neckline. It went together easily, except I didn't want raw edges (which I dislike) so I did a rolled hem for the sleeves and hem. I also did a standard folded and serged neckline for the bias neck band instead of leaving a raw edge.
Fabric Used:Cotton interlock. A little thicker than I think is intended, but it is what I had.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:As I said above I didn't like the raw edge look, it just looks unfinished. So I learned how to do a rolled hem on knit with my serger, which is much harder to control on an interlock knit than on a woven. Since my son is a NO Saints fan, I thought I would create a game watching dress for my one year old GD. I originally was going to insert a piece of New Orleans Saints fabric diagonally from the side seam to the hem line, but decided that just looked goofy. As the colors of this team are black and gold, I simply did the rolled hems in gold thread and then created a logo patch out of the cloth I bought for the insertion, using Wonder Under, and edge stitching around the edge and ironing it on.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will probably sew this again. The pattern, evidently now OOP, has a cute t-shirt, and I will probably make a shirt or another shorter dress to use with leggings.
Conclusion: This was so easy to sew, I am sorry this is OOP. I highly recommend it, esp. if you like a raw edge look. I did learn how to do a rolled hem on this knit thought, (after 4 attempts on the sleeve.)
