Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't really follow them, but I remember from the first time they were straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the vintage style. I hate that the sleeve pattern piece needed both length and width alterations.
Cotton eyelet (the embroidery is not cotton). White fabric dyed blue with Dylon machine dye.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Cut 18 for neck and shoulders (based on high bust measurement), grading to 22 at waist and hips, further cheated at the bottom snap to accommodate my tummy.
Full bust adjustment.
Added 1" in length to the body.
Added 2" width to sleeve at top and 1" in length above the elbow and 1/2" in length below.
Fiddled around with the armscye at the back to make up for no shoulder pads.
Snaps to close, no decorative buttons. Unlined, finished with bias binding instead.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I like this blouse. I will add a little more length in front to make it more wearable with modern rise pants.
Just measure your arms and the pattern to make sure it will work for you. Cute blouse!
