Pattern Description:
Misses'/miss petite Blouse, Skirt, Jacket and Knit Cartigan.
Pattern Sizing:
6-14 I made the jacket and blouse in a 10 and the skirt in a 12.
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 they were pretty easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love this 60's retro pattern! Such a great style and I loved the cute bow on the blouse! I had this pattern for about a year and knew I wanted to make it into a Jackie O inspired outfit; all I had to do was find the right pink pill box hat!
Fabric Used:
I used a white faille for the blouse and a nice light pink linnen blend for the skirt and jacket which I matched to my pink pillbox hat.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
On the jacket I left off all the flexible braid trim because I felt it didn't need it. I tapered the skirt in another inch or two on the side seams in order for it to have more of a "pencil" look. I also took about 2 inches off the bottom of the skirt cause I'm short ;)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend it to others, and I may make it again in some different fabric.
Conclusion:
This was yet another fun pattern I made for my tea society's spring tea. I had so much fun wearing this with a matching pill box hat!

OMG...this is so cute! The pink is adorable. I've been holding onto this pattern for about 6 months. I even bought fabric but I want to shed the x-tra 20-lbs first. Don't know why i'm waiting, I can always make another...
