Pattern Description: His and hers zipped top or pullover jumper. Pullover has princess seams, neckband and cuffed raglan sleeves. Zipped top has pockets and hood. I made the pullover top.
Pattern Sizing: Unisex Sml-Med-Lrg (XM) I made the small.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were as easy to follow as this was to make. I didn't follow them but I read through them before construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Dislike the photo on the pattern envelope! Doesn't do this top justice at all. The diagrams are what made me notice this pattern. I also disliked the fit. Other reviewers said this pattern came up big. I agree.
I Like how it was quick and easy to make and the princess seams. They turned out to be a blessing for fitting!
Fabric Used: I used a beautiful Boucle fabric (which was probably far too nice to be used for this pattern lol!)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made no design changes but I had to more or less re-fit the entire front. The pattern envelope says this is close fitting. It's not. Not for a female anyway. The front panel is far to wide, I had to cut that seam down by 1" each side. I also had to do the same on the front raglan sleeve seam. With these tweaks, it fitted much nicely.
After completing this jumper I didn't like how it looked on me at all (see my blog) No fault with the pattern, the length just didn't suit me. So I shortened it (quite a lot!) and that has made a HUGE difference.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wouldn't make this again but would recommend with fitting adjustments. Yes its labelled as an easy pattern (which it is) but you would need to know how to alter the pattern for the fit. Not so easy for a beginner.
Conclusion: With fit modifications this is a lovely jumper which I am now pleased with.
