|This pattern is a nice cowl neck. It isn't as full and drapey as most cowls are, and that is what I like about it. Silhouette patterns all have B, C, D bust sizing, and I really like that too.|
What frustrates me about Silhouette Patterns is how often the photo on the front and the drawing on the back of the envelopes does not match what is INSIDE the envelope.
I used the D-Cup sizing, and it fits well through the bust. I had problems with the sleeves which I detail in my blog if you care to check it. I had to shorten them a lot, and they were not as pictured on the envelope. On me, the shoulder seam is an inch further back than I like it, and it is not because the blouse needs to be pulled forward. I put a round back correction in it, and it doesn't pull one way or the other. The shoulder slope is quite off as well.
I think the back neck of the blouse is a little low, so I am making the next one higher. I also widened the shoulders 5/8" to cover my bra straps.
I really like the blouse, and I am going to try it again with more corrections. The directions say you can make it in a woven or a knit, but I'm using knits.
My blog post covering this blouse is:
EDIT: If you will COPY and PASTE all of that link above, it will work. It will take you to the right day on my blog.
Yikes! That doesn't look right. I will try to fix it if it doesn't work. My blog is: www.joyful-expressions.blogspot.com. The date of this post is 1-18-14.
