Simple Chic, No. 1 Blouse Pattern Description
Japanese pattern book--back button, tie top mock turtleneck sheath blouse. Which view and size did you make?
Size L Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes If not, why?
- Were the instructions easy to follow?
No If not, why?
Usually I do OK with the Japanese drawings, but this was a real struggle, even after making it twice. I still don't understand how the interior neck binding is supposed to be. So, I modified it for a classic mock turtle neck finish. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the shaping with the darts and the tie top. Fabric used
Version one, argyle silk twill (silk twill baby!); version two, german import stretch heavyweight rayon twill. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I would love for someone else to show me how to get the neck right. This pattern has such potential...I really would like to master it. Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
