|Pattern Description: Vintage 1948 rerelease of baby layette pattern. Includes jackets, slips, booties, bonnets, and a-line day gowns with knife pleating at the shoulders|
Pattern Sizing: XXS-L (preemie to 18 months) I made 0-3 (XS)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes (View B) except I did not add the lace trim to the neck and sleeves, as I could not find any that I felt was soft enough for a newborn. I also did machine embroidery for the bodice and hemline instead of hand embroidery.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, quite easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? There were a couple things that didn't work for me about the pattern; 1) the neckline is finished with single-fold bias tape, and I had a devil of a time getting it to curve and lay flat on such a tight curve as is required on such a small neck opening. 2) There is a pleat in the back which makes the button placket, that is cut and unfinished, which is just a personal issue (possible fraying problems after laundering a few times?). 3) I had a hard time with the buttonholes as the placket was not interfaced and my machine just couldn't seem to sew them in straight due to the small size and the width of the buttonhole foot.
Fabric Used: Like the others who reviewed this pattern, I used the Symphony Broadcloth from Joann's.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, I would not sew it again, I think there are better patterns out there, but others seem to be pleased with the pattern.
