Seven Sizes in One, Size A, US 10 to 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I sewed the top (View B) only. It is a very, very simple top.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, mostly. The instructions for applying bias tape to the neckline were not clear though. They refer to a crease that you have opened out, but do not distinguish it from the crease on the binding that you leave folded.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I wanted to sew up something fairly quickly both to assess my own skill level and to see how my sewing machine was working after a long hiatus.
I am not happy with the length of the sleeve. I plan to make this with a longer sleeve another time. However, for hot weather, the brevity of the sleeve may be desirable under a jacket like the one in the pattern.
Both the sleeves and the curved hem on the top are narrow hemmed. Using a narrow hem foot on a curve can e QUITE the challenge, I found.
Inexpensive polyester crepe
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, definitely. The simplicity of the cut means you can showcase fabric and texture. It also makes up really quickly, so I felt as if I had finished something, and that motivates me to sew more.
This was the first New Look pattern that I have sewn; I have been mostly a Vogue fan in the past. This top didn't call on any real techniques, but that made it relaxing and fun to sew. Especially for those with rectangle body types, 6217 offers a lot of garments in one pattern. Also, the wide range of sizes in the one pattern is nice if, like me, you are dealing with a changed body and need to mix and match sizes, top and bottom.
