|Pattern Description: |
Blouse with 3 different necklines and sleeves to choose.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it really did!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy to follow and the top came together in no time. I got slightly confused about the step where you understitch the neckline facing but figured it out eventually.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved everything about it. Don't like Peter Pan collars so I won't bother making that style.
A cheap polycotton (£2.99 a metre). This was a practise run and I didn't want to use anything expensive in case it went wrong. As it turned out so well I will definitely wear it although I will make it again in a cotton lawn.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Amazingly despite being a petite 4ft 11 I didn't have to change anything. I think it you were taller though it would be worth considering whether you need to lengthen the top.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! Love it and will definitely be making more of these. I think the pattern lends itself to a softer fabric such as cotton lawn so next time I will be using this.
Really lovely pattern that will come in use time and time again. More detailed review on my blog. Sew Petite Blog
