Pattern Description:
Baby play suit
Pattern Sizing:
Large View A
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Mostly, I changed the pockets
Were the instructions easy to follow?
As a rank beginner I found it difficult at times
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Instructions are not very detailed for an inexperienced sewer.
Fabric Used:
Light weight denim, quilting cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made the pocket on the front larger, did a smaller version as a back pocket and left out the crayon appliques.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes
Conclusion:
It was a bit of an ambitious project for a beginner but it allowed me to expand my skills. I'm very pleased with the result as it's the first time I've followed a pattern and made a garment.
