Chado Ralph Rucci top and skirt Pattern Sizing:
6-14 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not really as I used the top as a jump off point...the back remained the same pattern but the front is very different Were the instructions easy to follow?
Did not use What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how versatile it is, a great basic sloper if you will, and the possibilities are endless once you fit it correctly Fabric Used:
Silk charmeuse and the most amazing Soutache Lace ever! Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I kept the basic back pattern but changed the front to extend into a drape that joins the opposite side and doubled up on the layers while adding colour for contrast Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I am going to keep this pattern as a basic forever, its got great lines and the fact that it can be changed from bias to on grain is fabulous. Conclusion:
If you like to mix things up this is a great pattern to start from, I think it would work well for all sizes as modifications are so simple, a higher neckline, a lower arm, a changed hemline.... Good basic patternmaking skills to ease you in!!
