|Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?|
No, I changed it totally
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's a good pattern for adapting
satin-backed crepe on the body, poly lace on the sleeves
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This garment was a total accident. I meant to cut a dress out of the fabric, but got my pattern pieces mixed up, and cut out this top.
I then didn't have enough fabric to cut out the dress (for a wedding in 2 days' time).
I decided to go with it (I had nothing else suitable), but the pattern is for a knit, and this crepe doesn't stretch: I couldn't get it on, so I put a sheer lace panel at the sides to give me an extra 5 inches.
I made the skirt out of the same fabric, drafting the pattern myself out of a back piece (pencil skirt): I cut 2 'backs', added a zip and a walking slit
It wasn't the wedding outfit I'd planned for, but I think it worked out OK in the end.
It was a mad panic though, and I was still sewing 2 hrs before the wedding started
