|Fabric:||Cotton-Lycra Woven [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: Loose fitting unlined jacket or vest.|
Pattern Sizing: I made a size 12 and added 2 inches at the bust via an FBA.
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? Yes. The back panel wraps around to the front. You have to pay attention attaching the sides to the back at first. I'd recommend using your dressform to help see how it goes together. After that, its easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like a shawl collar. I really like that this pattern is a little different than just a regular old shirt, but that its not so different that it starts wearing you instead of you wearing it!
I thought it was a shirt pattern until I sat down to write this review--it says its a jacket or vest pattern.
I would think that some people would think its a bit on the short side in the front. I am not quite 5' (and my FBA added and inch of lenghth) -- its fine for me though.
Fabric Used: I have made two--one in a stiff shirting and one in fleece.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Like any Vogue pattern that says its loose fitting--I think you'd be wise to choose your size by the measurements on the tissue not the envelope. I used a size 12 and added 2 inches with an FBA. I still had to whittle down the with of the shoulders about 3/4 of and inch. It has plenty of ease.
As mentioned above I think this might be a bit short for some people.
It did not need my usual slope shoulder adjustment.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I LOVE LOVE this pattern. Well done, Marcy!
Conclusion: More at Room for Sewing
