Palmer/Pletsch pattern - Loose fitting pullover tops have draped front and back collar. pattern picture Pattern Sizing:
XS-Medium in one envelope, large-XXL in another envelope. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I must add that the photo doesn't do it justice. When I saw this made up on Pati Palmer before it came out I was watching for the day when the pattern would come out. Click Here and go to page 21 for Pati's top It's so different and I love the SUPER drapey front. Mind you - this is my muslin. I want to get a more muted print for this top. Were the instructions easy to follow?
OK...hold on tight...this is like nothing you've ever made! It seems like an alien from outer space at first. On page 5 and instruction #6 I read and re-read it because it sounds like you are sewing the neck together. I kept wondering how I was going to get my head into it if I sew it together. But I read ahead and it finally made sense so follow the instructions carefully. Do a muslin (test run) first. There are only TWO pieces to the pattern - woohoo! So it does go together quickly once you understand the instructions. This also has a mini burrito technique in it for the back collar (there is a facing for the back neck which folds down into a collar. Another note: When you sew the front (Another weird step) page 4 under view B, C step number 2 is the front and I just want to add that I sewed it higher for more modesty. It's quite low in the front. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the exagerrated drapey front. So much fun and different! Fabric Used:
Rayon jersey large graphic print from Mood. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed the front higher for modesty. No other alterations needed. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I can't wait to do it again. Once you know what you're doing this can go together in about 20 minutes or less. Conclusion:
Try it out and please post.
